This Sunday, May 27, 2012, Beethoven Found will host the Memorial Day Festival Honoring Wounded Warriors at Great Meadow, home of the Gold Cup in Plains, VA. Beethoven Found, a 501(C)3, charitable corporation was created to utilize major symphony orchestras to help support people in need by organizing concerts to raise funds, provide entertainment, culture, and classical music education in a fun environment. H. David Meyers and Brett Murray started putting on concerts a few years ago to raise money for special causes. When H. David met one of the soldiers who had been wounded at Walter Reed, he took on the cause of giving to Wounded Warriors.
The day long event at Great Meadow will feature the largest group of talented performers ever assembled for any occasion. There will be members of the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, Baltimore Symphony, and National Symphony and other professional symphony musicians will come together to create a 200-member orchestra with a 500-strong chorus conducted by Maestro Ulysses S. James, Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic Association. There will be six bands including Marcus Johnson and the Blackbyrds on a specially constructed stage surrounded by risers for the chorus and two Jumbotrons will show the action.
There will be more than a hundred corporate tents with free barbeque and beer trucks serving an anticipated 30,000 guests. There will be free wine tasting from over 30 wineries and an air show will fly overhead. Children of all ages will enjoy games and fun in a carnival-type atmosphere, and much more.
