Free Patriotic Concert at VFW

Story by WBGZ Radio

A local choir will put on a free show this Sunday at the Alton VFW Hall.  The Seasons of Life Women's Choir presents a USO/Patriotic Theme program Sunday at 2pm to benefit the VFW and local women's shelter.  The choir was formed in 2014 for women of all ages and any money raised by the choir goes to charity.

Choir Director Eddie Hitchcock tells the Big Z the choir performs twice a year and wanted to do something around Memorial Day:

A group of local musicians from SIUE will join the choir for the upbeat, big band era concert.  Admission Sunday is free but a collection will be taken up with proceeds to be split between the Alton VFW Post 1308 and the Violence Prevention Center of Southwestern Illinois. The show should last about an hour.  The VFW is located on North Alby Street, just behind Alton Square Mall.
