MemorialDayConcertscreenshot3A star-studded cast will perform for the PBS live broadcast of the National Memorial Day concert.  This year, the National Memorial Day Concert honors Capt. Luis Avila, a military policeman severely injured after an IED explosion. During the performance segment, featuring acclaimed singer Renée Fleming, a special moment will be dedicated to the importance of music therapy services for veterans.  Capt. Avila and music therapist, Rebecca Vaudreuil, will join Ms. Fleming on stage to recognize the importance of music therapy in the rehabilitation of America's veterans. The concert will be broadcast live on PBS as well as to our troops serving around the world on the American Forces Network. The American Music Therapy Association is appreciative for Ms. Fleming's support of music therapy.
