Remembering our Heroes
(article by Kristen Beauchamp Butt)
December 7, 1941 marked a dark day in American history.  Following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the loss of over 2,500 lives, Congress declared war on Japan, and by extension, Nazi Germany.  The war continued for over three years and more than 400,000 soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, and military personnel lost their lives or remained missing in action by the end.  Finally, on May 8, 1945, the enduring determination and sacrifice of American veterans was rewarded with the news that the war with Germany was over.  Victory in Europe had come! 
On May 8, America will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Victory in Europe.  With appreciation and thanks to veterans, the Orchestra of Southern Utah would like to extend an invitation to a complimentary dinner in their honor.  The dinner will take place at 6:00 pm on Thursday April 16th at the Heritage Theatre in Cedar City and is free for all military veterans and those on active duty.  For all others, admission to the dinner is $3, after purchase of a concert ticket.  Due to limited seating, a ticket will be required for each person.  Tickets can be reserved by phone at 435-233-8213 or through the Heritage Theatre box office.  They are available on a first-come, first-served basis so please request your tickets early. 
Following the dinner, the Orchestra of Southern Utah will perform the concert Remembrance of Victory in Europe.  Admission to the concert is $5.00 for veterans and students and $10 for adults.  Because our concerts are recorded, we request that children under the age of six not attend. 
The OSU is delighted to present their very own principal cellist, Nina Hansen, as she performs Kol Nidrei by Max Bruch. This piece honors the beauty and rhapsody of Hebrew melodies.  Violist Ling Yu will perform Ernest Bloch’s Prayer; which honors the Jewish Prayer.  Patriotic pieces included in the program are Fanfare for the Common Man by Aaron Copland, Victory at Sea by Richard Rodgers, and the theme from the movie Lawrence of Arabia ring with excitement and heroism.  For all our Veterans and their families, OSU will perform two movements of Antonin Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9; The New World Symphony, will remind us of our homes and bring us hope.
We are assembling a slide show presentation to recognize our military serviceman for their incredible gift to our country.  If you know a veteran or an individual on active duty, please send a picture to Emily Hepworth, OSU manager, at emilyosucedarcity@gmail.com. 
Please join us for an evening of heartwarming and courageous music, wonderful food, and the company of soldiers and families who gave so much. April 16th at 6:00 pm is the dinner; free for veterans, $3.00 with the purchase of a concert ticket. April 16th at 7:30 pm is the concert; $5.00 for students and veterans and active military, $10.00 for adults, $30.00 for groups of 6. Dinner and Concert at the Heritage Theater, 105 N. 100 E., Cedar City.
