December 1, 2000, Greencastle, Ind. -The DePauw University Band, under the direction of Craig, Paré, will present "A Tribute To Veterans" on Thursday, December 7, at 1 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center, Kresge Auditorium.

The guest narrator for the performance will be Robert Farber, vice president emeritus of DePauw University. "Veterans, of all the armed services, can never be thanked enough for all the sacrifices they have given to the United States of America, and all that we, as civilians, have come to value as our freedoms," Paré said, "As this year's concert happened to fall on December 7, the anniversary of the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor in 1941 that led to the United States' involvement in World War II, it is fitting to honor all veterans of the United States with music that embodies the spirit and sentiment of all Americans, and to the patriotism of our honored veterans."
The concert will feature: American Salute by Morton Gould, Heroes, Lost and Fallen by David Gillingham, Victory at Sea by Richard Rodgers, and The Stars and Stripes Forever by John Philip Sousa.
