From the “Marches of the Armed Forces” to “The Star-Spangled Banner,” beautifully performed music can say more than words when it comes to saluting American men and women in uniform.

In honor of members of the military past and present, members of the Hickory Creek Middle School Symphonic Band, Orchestra and Advanced Strings shared a special selection of music during a Veterans Day Concert on the evening of Thursday, Nov. 7. The event gave students, faculty members, families and the community a chance to enjoy a patriotic program.
