UPCOMING PERFORMANCE

Salute To First Responders
 

Sunday, September 11 at 3pm

Worley Barton Theater at Brentwood Christian School
11908 N. Lamar | Map |Free

 
A Patriots Day afternoon of music from “The Yeomen of the Guard” that honors the service and sacrifices made by peace officers, firefighters, and EMTs.
 
In British history, the Tower of London signifies a place of gruesome lore and tyrannical monarchs, where many suffered under the hand of an oppressor. In a similar vein, the fall of the Twin Towers at the World Trade Center in New York City signifies for most Americans a gruesome image: a day of death, despair and destruction. Though it has been 15 years since that terrible massacre, and though some of those pains have been soothed by Time’s solemn hand, we must not forget the atrocities that happened then, as well as those that have happened in more recent days.

We must also recognize the strength, courage, tenacity and the confluence of community that have emerged from these events. On Sunday, September 11, the Gilbert & Sullivan singers will raise their voices in honor of many brave men and women, the first responders, who have given their lives to help those in need. Our company will take you on a heroes’ journey through the eyes of the soulful patriot, emanating that spirit of determination and endurance, and will regale you with a lively musical revue of "The Yeomen of the Guard," Gilbert & Sullivan’s eleventh opera (a story set in the Tower of London in the 16th century).

Performers include Erica Lizette Salinas, Jamieson Taylor, Rosa Mondragon Harris, Maurine McLean, Danny Castillo, Patrick Wright, David Fontenot, and Robert Schneider. Narration is by Janette Jones with Jeanne Sasaki accompanying.

Donatins AcceptedThis concert will benefit The 100 Club of Central Texas, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization devoted to providing immediate assistance, both financial and emotional, to injured or killed first responders and their families.

Donations will be accepted at the door. A reception will follow the performance; please bring your favorite dish or treat to share!
