70th Commemoration of D-Day!
Exciting news! Reveille 3 has been selected to represent Allied Forces of WWII at the 70th Commemoration of D-Day. As one of a handful of performance groups selected for this honor, will be in performing in collaboration with the Alexandria Harmonizers, a 105-member men’s barbershop chorus, with shows in and around the Normandy area this June 2014.
Performances include Normandy American Cemetery, Utah and Omaha Beaches, Sainte-Mère-Église Parade and Community Concert, Notre-Dame Cathedral, Luxembourg Gardens, plus the Cologne Cathedral and a collaborative concert on the Cologne River with the BiNG Barbershop Chorus of Cologne, Germany (produced separately by BiNG).
The commemoration events are being organized by the American Battlefields and Monuments Commission (ABMC), within the US Department of the Interior, who provide oversight for events like the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day landings. The AMBC is using the American Musical Salute (AMS) company to coordinate the events in the area.
The ABMC and AMS do not provide any financial assistance to selected performing groups. Thus we are embarking on a multi- faceted fundraising campaign including an online crowdfunding campaign, Spring 2014 fundraising concert tour of Colorado plus we are accepting private donations and sponsorships, with tax deductible options available.
We wanted to start getting the word out there about this amazing opportunity for Reveille 3 to represent Colorado, the US and Allied Forces this summer at this historic event. We’ll keep you posted as to how you can help us get to Normandy!
As always, thanks for your support and we look forward to seeing your smiling face at a concert! Reveille 3
