Sinfonia: a Musical Tribute to the Military
Mar 20, 2018
7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
In engagement with the Imperial Symphony Orchestra, Southeastern University is proud to present Sinfonia: Connecting the Arts & Community; a night of music that serves as a tribute to the military members in their local and national communities. Join us in honoring past and present military members through the unifying power of music, arranged by special guest conductor, Joseph DeBeasi. DeBeasi’s impressive repertoire includes the composition of original scores for over 60 feature films, including Clint Eastwood’s Oscar-nominated American Sniper, as well as The Revenant, Prisoners, The Book of Eli, Because of Winn-Dixie, Dirty Dancing and Maid in Manhattan. For this event, DeBeasi has arranged a customized score from American Sniper as well as a specially commissioned piece, funded by Southeastern University, that focuses on the journey of adjustment their military members undertake upon returning home from deployment.
