The National D-Day Memorial’s annual Memorial Day weekend concert will feature performances by The Let's Dance Band and the Jefferson Choral Society.
The Let's Dance Band is a contemporary swing band with twenty members who perform period big band music that will have guests out of their seats and dancing to the melodies of a bygone era. The Let's Dance Band will perform starting at 7 p.m.
For over a decade, the Jefferson Choral Society, Central Virginia's largest classical chorus with eighty-five members, has been the featured performance in the annual Memorial Day weekend concert. The performers represent six countries and eighteen surrounding communities and will treat audiences this year to a patriotic music event.
