To celebrate Veterans Day, save the date for the Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra’s Salute to the Military (11/12). Vocalist Darden Purcell joins conductor Jim Carroll, both of whom are Veterans, for an unforgettable evening of jazz standards. The evening will feature music from the Jazz Age and eras of World War I and World War II. Highlights include a medley of songs from the Andrews Sisters, such as “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” and “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree,” as well as iconic hits like “Sentimental Journey.” This concert is FREE for Veterans and Servicemembers with ID (up to 2 tickets each) and tickets can be claimed in-person at the Hylton Center Ticket Office.
