July 4th, 2012: At the Eisemann Center, Richardson, Texas
with the Plano Symphony Orchestra, Plano Civic Chorus and Patriotic Pops Chorus.

The fabulous Steve Amerson, tenor, also sang solos at the concert and it WAS awesome! What a voice that man has!! Maestro Hector Guzman is just the test ever!!!! And the Plano Chapter SAR Color Guard presented the colors. The whole afternoon was just so much fun and the music was so perfect!!!

Debbie Watson, who introduces groups at the Eisemann, also wanted her photo with the guys. We are very familiar with them after 2 years of posting the colors for the children's school programs they do there.
