CHCA gave their first Veterans Day Concert last year with gratitude for the many faculty, alumni, family, friends, and neighbors who have served and/or are currently serving our country. It was such a wonderful evening of celebration and expressed gratitude. The event was so moving to many people in the audience as well as those on stage, that requests poured in to do it again this year. So, this marks the second year of this great event, and CHCA would be honored to welcome all who are able to attend.
The event last year also led to a similar Veteran’s Tribute Concert by Seven Hill Brass & Percussion Ensemble this past Saturday, November 9, at St. Columban Church in Loveland. this past Saturday, November 9. It was a huge success and you won’t want to miss this second chance locally to see and hear this wonderful tribute concert at CHCA.
