A special Patriot Day band and choral concert will be at 8 p.m. tonight in Harris County High School in Hamilton.
Harris County High School and Villa Rica High School of Carroll County will combine to present this concert to present a military tribute to observe 9/11.
The combined bands will play a selection of patriotic songs including a world premiere by Columbus State University music professor Robert Rumbelow. Miranda Bass, Harris County's band director commissioned this piece. Bass also organized this concert with the Villa Rica band and chorus.
Bass, who went to Villa Rica High School, was inspired by the death of another former Villa Rica High student, Mike Hardegree, a soldier who was killed in action in Iraq in 2007.
Never miss a local story.
Rumbelow's piece is called "Faith of Honor" and will be published by Kjos Music.
