Eastern Area Youth Chorale will host ‘Concert of Thanks’ on Veterans Day

November 12, 2018

For the first time since 2001, the Eastern Area Youth Chorale will present a “Concert of Thanks” for veterans, an evening of patriotic and American music, on Veterans Day.

The concert will coincide with EAYC’s fall spaghetti dinner, which will take place at 5 p.m. before the 7 p.m. concert at Zion Lutheran Church, 11609 Frankstown Road in Penn Hills.

The group’s previous “Concert of Thanks” came in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon.

Songs will include “The Star-Spangled Banner,” “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” “Yankee Doodle Dandy,” “I Am a Small Part of the World,” “Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier,” “Let There Be Peace on Earth” and “Where Can We Find Peace?”

A medley of songs from the nation’s armed services is also part of the concert.

EAYC is made up of students from Penn Hills, Murrysville, Monroeville, Saltsburg, Kiski, Plum and Shadyside.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for children under 10, and include both the dinner and concert. Tickets for veterans are complimentary with the purchase of at least one adult ticket.
