The musical forces of the University of Mississippi Chorus and Orchestra and members of the Oxford Civic Chorus will join together for a musical salute to all veterans of the United States military.

This community event will feature many patriotic musical favorites including “America, the Beautiful,” “Salute to the Armed Forces,” “This is My Country,” and “God Bless America.” In addition to the musical offerings, special tributes will be presented including honoring current University of Mississippi student veterans, the veterans at the Veterans Home of Mississippi here in Oxford, and a special salute to veterans of loved ones and friends of local Oxford and Lafayette county citizens and of current Ole Miss students.
