Music is in the Air – 2011 Summer Music Schedule

The hills are alive with the sound of music…meaning “Ye Hills of Wayne”, a poem made famous by Mary Ashley Townsend.

Some of the songs to be performed include Keep the Home Fires Burning, America the Beautiful, A Tribute to the Armed Services, I Believe in America, Give Me Your Tired Your Poor, God Bless America, Thank you Solders and Battle Hymn of the Republic.
