Armed Forces Day Concert
May 21 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Music Director Sterling Poulson and the Choral Arts Society of Utah invite you to an
evening dedicated to honoring our men and women in the Armed Forces. It is a free event, and parking
is free under the plaza. The concert is a community-focused event honoring our men and women in
uniform, both the past and present and highlights the soldiers, airmen and civilian employees who have
excelled in their service to this country. This concert also gives the many Veterans and their families in
our community, the opportunity to stand up and be counted during the Armed Forces Salute.
The evening entertainment begins at 5:30 pm, with the 23rd Army Band Rock Band (Article 15). The
concert starts at 7:00 P.M. The concert will include a variety of music including the patriotic favorites
you love to hear and ends with a rousing rendition of John Philip Sousa’s Stars & Stripes Forever.
Bring your family and enjoy plenty of food, fun and support service booths along with the great
entertainment. The Utah Department of Veterans and Military Affairs will honor outstanding service
members and employees from military units across Utah. The choir will also perform “Prayer for
Ukraine” as a memorial tribute to the loss of life and the devastation that continues.
The Utah National Guard 23rd Army Band has played for Presidents, Senators, Congressmen, and Heads
of State. Each year the Band performs for thousands of people across the State of Utah and the United
States, giving clinics and concerts for schools, playing at civic functions, marching in parades, and
providing music for military dances, changes of command, and pass-in-reviews. The Rock Band, Article
15 will take you back to whatever generation you are from and consists of 2 guitar players, a bass guitar
player, keyboard player, percussionist and vocalists.
Now in its 36th year, members of the 110-voice Choral Arts Society of Utah volunteer their time and
talents to provide quality performances, many of which benefit schools and organizations offering
humanitarian services to the local area. For more information on upcoming events, please visit our
