Duty, Honor, and Valor: A Flag Day Concert Honoring the Centennial of the United States’ Entry into World War.
2017 is the centennial of the United States’ entry into World War I. World War I marked an end to U.S. isolationism and eventually helped to usher in a decade of cultural, social, and financial prosperity. Overcoming three years of stalemate that had previously existed, American entry tipped the balance of power in favor of the Allies. On June 17, 7:30 PM at Slee Hall, the Buffalo Silver Band will present a narrated program (TV personality Mike Randall to narrate). The program, honoring all veterans, will educate the audience about World War I as well as the music of the period. Proceeds from the concert will be used to benefit the Veterans One Stop Center of Western New York (vocwny.org), Western New York’s premier veterans service and advocacy collaborative
