The American Heritage Concert Series is an annual program whose proceeds benefit the preservation of the Maple Street Chapel. Given the chapel’s significance in the history of the Village of Lombard, a program dedicated to our American heritage of music is most appropriate. Past programs have included music of native American Indians, a piece believed to have been written by Benjamin Franklin, Abe Lincoln Portrait, The Story of the Battle Hymn of the Republic, a salute to Walt Disney, and John Williams and George Gershwin highlights.
In addition to the presentation of American music, the program salutes Americans who serve: the armed forces, fire and police personnel, and teachers. During The Armed Forces Salute (a medley of the hymns of the branches of the service), audience members’ names are announced and the people asked to stand. In addition, a page of the program is dedicated to individual stories of courage.
