Community fills Koger Center for Memorial Day Tribute

The Palmetto Concert Band held its 15th Annual Memorial Tribute Sunday afternoon.

COLUMBIA (WACH) - The Palmetto Concert Band held its 15th Annual 'Memorial Day Tribute' Sunday afternoon.

The group of talented musicians performed a variety of pieces in front of a packed house at the Koger Center to celebrate those who have served in the military.

People of all ages came out to enjoy the show and remember loved ones.

"My grandfather was in the Marine Corps before he was honorably discharged after the Korean War, and so that's been really close to me, to be able to come to concerts such as this. It's kind of a way for me to honor him even though he lives on the other side of the country," said Kendall Ackerman, who works at the University of South Carolina.

The band is made up of people who enjoy playing music and want to be involved. They began preparing for this show last month.
