A spectacular patriotic musical journey to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of 9/11. Honoring our CT Firefighters/EMS, Police, Armed Forces, and Veterans who give so much to protect us!
NOTE: Each attendee is required to have a ticket regardless of age.
The Middlesex Hospital Vocal Chords has prepared a spectacular patriotic musical journey along with their special guests; Todd Allen Herendeen,
Triple Platinum Country & Gospel Star, Portland & Middletown High School Advanced Choirs and Middletown Police Benefit Association Pipes & Drums.
To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of 9/11, the afternoon will commence with our Firefighter’s and State Police Honor Guards leading our CT Firefighters/EMS and Police Departments, Armed Forces, and Veterans into the Mortensen Hall for an impressive show. This patriotic musical journey and time of reflection is dedicated to all the men and women who have given their lives to serve. Our nation would not be what it is today if it weren’t for these brave individuals. This tribute would not be possible without the continuing generosity of Middlesex Health, The Bushnell, our loyal members, and most of all the enthusiastic support of our audience. We honor and thank you all for helping us raise funds to benefit the CT Firefighter, EMS & Police Benevolent Fund and the Middlesex Health Covid-19 Emergency Response Fund.
MIDDLESEX HOSPITAL VOCAL CHORDS would never have been “born” if not for a dream of one caring nurse. In February 1990, JOYCE GHENT, R.N. at Middlesex Hospital, Middletown, Connecticut realized a connection between health and healing with music. Her dream has developed into our spectacular musical family, 90 devoted volunteers singing together, touching countless lives. Relieving stress, lifting spirits and healing souls with music is our motto. Oh the places this nurse has taken us over the past 31 years. The MHVC has traveled over 80,000 miles performing for the Pope at The Vatican in Rome, Washington D.C. at the Dirksen Senate Building as well as the South Lawn of the White House. A hospital in Montreal, Canada, annual hospice service for Middlesex Health in Connecticut and countless benefit concerts healing with music the universal language.
