CEDAR CITY — Two separate free public events honoring military veterans on Veterans Day are scheduled to take place in Cedar City.
The first will take place starting at 11 a.m. Thursday on the Southern Utah University campus, said Mike Miller, director of veteran services at SUU’s Veteran Resource and Support Center.
The program, which will be staged inside the ballroom of the Sharwan Smith Student Center, will feature remarks by Iron County Attorney Chad Dotson, an Army veteran.
Three local veterans will be honored for their service: one community member, one SUU student and one ROTC cadet, Miller added.
SUU’s wind symphony and its OPUS Choir will perform a variety of musical numbers, including the national anthem, “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” “Taps” and the official songs for each of the six branches of the U.S. military.
The program is free and open to the public.
Then, starting at 7:30 p.m. later that same evening, the Orchestra of Southern Utah will perform a “Patriotic Veterans Tribute and Cedar City Birthday Celebration” at the Heritage Center Theater in Cedar City. The two-hour, family-friendly concert is also scheduled to feature musical performances by Eric Dodge, Bill and Loretta Westbrook and the Southern Utah Chorale.
