Excerpt from http://rncsc.org/:
“Concert for Heroes” is the symphonic concert held at the Riverside National Cemetery and is the only show of its kind to be held in a national cemetery. The main show is divided into two parts. The first part, the Inland Empire/Riverside Philharmonic Orchestra performs exclusively patriotic and Americana music. The second part of the concert has a broad selection of pieces, ranging from light musical performances to movie scores, to famous classical works. All pieces selected are used as a way to express liberty and freedom to move the audience. The concert ends with a show-stopping firework display as “Stars and Stripes Forever” is played.
