Rustburg HS Choir Honors Veterans

Rustburg, VA - The Star Spangled Banner was one of many songs the Rustburg High School choir sang Monday night at a special Veteran's Day concert.

Songs with patriotic and American themes were featured and performed for area veterans and members of the community.

The Choir Director saw Veteran's Day as an excellent opportunity to honor American service men and women, but to also use American music as a teaching tool for these students.

"I hope that they'll understand that music and history intersect. Our songs are about things and events, wars that have happened in our American history, and we hope that will come through in the music" said Susan Poindexter, the Rustburg High School Choir Director.
