Last night, I attended a very special concert delivered by one of Westfield’s jewels. The Westfield Symphony Orchestra gave a concert called “America the Brave.” The program was so beautiful:
AMERICA THE BRAVE Commemorating the 10th anniversary of 9/11 Dvorak New World Symphony No. 9 in E Minor Copland Fanfare for the Common Man Barber Adagio for Strings Join us for a musical salute to our nation and its heroes through masterworks inspired by sacrifice, remembrance, honor and the promise of our future. New Jersey’s premier cultural tribute and gesture of solidarity celebrating all that is brave and good in our uniquely American life. This accompanied by poems and l when the Westfield Schools Choir and the orchestra led us in a rousing rendition of America the Beautiful.
It was a very special evening. Many Westfield families lost loved ones and this was a beautiful remembrance.
