The concert will be a tribute to the music of the Civil War era in recognition of the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address. Tuba player Mac Wright will perform on a vintage Civil War-era tuba. Music from the Swing era will also be included with vocalist and tympanist Sandra Irvin singing “Blue Moon” by Rodgers and Hart. Irvin is a retired music educator from Carson City and is a cellist with the Not Quite Ready For Carnegie Hall Orchestra.
