A Memorial Day Remembrance

An Orlando Concert Band sextet along with vocalist Keith Bolves will perform music to honor those who gave their lives in the service of their country. While live attendance will not be permitted, “Woodlawn Cemetery” will Facebook video the event.

After seventeen years of appearances at Woodlawn Cemetery’s annual “Memorial Day” event, this year the full Orlando Concert Band will not perform. Unfortunately, the current Coronavirus protocols at Woodlawn include social-distancing polices that prohibit crowds.

But even with no live audience on Memorial Day, “the show will go on!” Next week Woodlawn will video-tape a “virtual” event on-location in the cemetery. It will be downloaded on Monday, May 25 on the funeral home’s Facebook page. DVDs will also be produced for distribution.

The Memorial Day” program will feature a military speaker (a female major-general), clergy, an honor guard with firing team, presentation of wreaths to honor the military branches, the tolling bell, and “Echo Taps”.

Yes, there will also be band music! This year, the OCB will provide a brass sextet, plus vocalist Keith Bolves. Keith is a talented operatic tenor (and Woodlawn funeral director) who has sung with OCB at Woodlawn’s Memorial Day event for the past two years.

Orlando Concert Band members who will perform with the sextet include Dean Psarakis, Rick de Treville, and Brian Jackson on trumpet, Michael Longdo on Fr. horn, Tim Douglas on trombone, and Mark Honnold on tuba.
