Remembering Sacrifices: Tabernacle Choir Joins West Point Band to Perform "America, the Dream Goes on"


On Veteran’s Day, we remember those who have protected and defended the liberties we enjoy on a daily basis. Every year on November 11 we celebrate and remember those who have given their lives and time to serve our country.

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the string section of the Orchestra at Temple Square, along with the West Point Band and cadets, gathered together and sang “America, the Dream Goes on” by John Williams on July 4th this year.

“Though the voices are changing, The song's the same as it sings from sea to sea, And as long as the music is strong and clear We'll know that tomorrow will always be free,” the choir sings at the last verse. Today let us remember those who continually fight so “that tomorrow will always be free.”
