The IPBS SALUTE to Vietnam Veterans will feature in concert THE TEXAS TENORS who are a 3-time Emmy award winning vocal group and a top four finalist in the fourth season of America’s Got Talent. Audiences will be treated to a unique blend of country, classical, Broadway and current pop music as well as a moving tribute to the armed services including patriotic music.
In addition to the performance by THE TEXAS TENORS, the audience will be treated to a preview of THE VIETNAM WAR, a film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick which will premiere on PBS stations September 17. THE VIETNAM WAR tells the epic story of one of the most consequential, divisive, and controversial events in American history as it has never been told before on film. The documentary explores the human dimensions of the war through testimony of nearly 80 witnesses from all sides–Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as combatants and civilians from North and South Vietnam.
Another important part of the evening will be a special ceremony honoring Vietnam Veterans and their families.
