Memorial Day is much more than a three-day weekend that marks the beginning of summer. To many people, especially the nation’s thousands of combat veterans, this day, which has a history stretching back all the way to the Civil War, is an important reminder of those who died in the service of their country.
Music Celebrations International and the American Veterans Center are pleased to present the National Memorial Day Concert Series – an annual musical commemoration in Washington, D.C over Memorial Day Weekend. Past commemorations have included the 70th Anniversary of D-Day in 2014, the 70th Anniversary of the End of World War II and the 150th Anniversary of the End of the American Civil War in 2015, the 75th Anniversary of the Attack on Pearl Harbor in 2016, and the 75th Anniversary of the End of World War II in 2019.
A series of patriotic and inspiring performances take place throughout Memorial Day Weekend on the National Mall and Memorials in Washington, DC.
