Millennial Choirs & Orchestras (MCO), a choral and orchestra group with more than 2,600 singers and instrumentalists, including children, teenagers, and adults, has joined with Glenn Beck to premiere the musical tribute to God and country, 'To Be American'. Featuring both original music and American classics composed and arranged by Brett Stewart, and a spoken word narrative by Glenn, the production is a tribute to our faithful Founding Fathers, to Old Glory, to the U.S. Armed Forces, to Americans past and present, and to God.
In December, the Millenial Choir partnered with Glenn for 'The Performance', a reality miniseries on TheBlaze which followed brothers Brett and Brandon Stewart as they transformed 800 ordinary vocalists and musicians into a multi-faith choir.
Glenn said, "The Stewart brothers have been working on a amazing piece to tell the story of America in music and spoken word. We began working together last year before Man in the Moon."
"You will come out high as a kite after hearing and seeing things you never dreamed," he added.
Brandon Stewart, one of the founding directors of MCO, said, "This is exactly what America needs today: a spiritual reminder of who we are as Americans, why our country is so unique and blessed, and what our responsibilities are to keep it sustained as ‘one nation under God.’ This concert will hands down be my favorite MCO performance to date.”
The concerts will be held on April 11th and 12th at Mesa Arts Center in Mesa, AZ; on April 26th at Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, TX; on May 29th at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City, UT; and on May 31st at Segerstrom Concert Hall in Costa Mesa, CA. Glenn's narration of the concerts will be live in Arizona and Texas, and provided as a recording for California and Utah.
