Our latest special, "Salute in Song," honors the commitment and service of the men and women in our armed forces, past and present. Hosted by Alison Young and featuring Cantus, this new one-hour special presents music and dialogue about the armed services, with an emphasis on Veterans Day.

Performances by Cantus include "In Flanders Fields," "Waiting for the Dawn of Peace," "Last Letter Home," "Imagine," and "America the Beautiful."
