COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Service men and women are receiving an honor for their commitment and sacrifice, one week before Memorial Day.

On Sunday, the Columbus Community Orchestra held a free Pre-Memorial Day concert at the St. Mark United Methodist Church on Whitesville Road.

The program included a special musical tribute to the legacy of General Hal Moore. 

It was the concluding concert for the orchestra's season.

“We think it's a fitting tribute to all of our veterans in Columbus and for those who have given up their lives in the service of our country we do this musical tribute to them,” said William Frye, conductor of Columbus Community Orchestra.

Many of Sunday’s guest musicians came from Fort Benning's MCOE band.

The concert ended with an armed service salute.
