RED BANK—Calling all patriots! Are you a real, live niece or nephew of Uncle Sam? Does your heart beat red, white and blue when you hear a brass band?
The 26th annual “Liberty Extravaganza,” including a concert of all-American music and an audience sing-along of patriotic songs, is planned for July 6 at the First Presbyterian Church at Red Bank (Tower Hill), 255 Harding Road. The 7:30 p.m. concert is preceded by a strawberry festival on the church patio beginning at 5 p.m. and featuring music by the Hot Taters band.
The concert includes music by the Liberty Choir, soloists and a brass ensemble. The choir is made up of singers from the church and the community. Popular features of the All-American musical program include patriotic favorites, gospel songs, and audience sing-a-longs to standards like “Yankee Doodle” and “God Bless America.” A stirring salute to the armed forces pays tribute to the men and women who have served the nation in uniform. The evening concludes with the raising of the grand flag.
Doors open at 6:45 p.m. for admission to the concert, a Tower Hill Concert Series event. Early arrival is advised to be sure of a seat. Admission is free; an offering will be taken to benefit the concert series. There is a $5 charge for the homemade strawberry dessert.
The church is handicapped-accessible. For additional information or to be placed on the mailing list for Tower Hill Concert Series events, call 732-747-1348.
