Where Art Our Veterans-A Salute to Veterans in Art & Music

The Charleston Symphony Orchestra League will host a luncheon featuring internationally renowned watercolorist Mary Whyte and members of the Charleston Symphony, led by Concertmaster and Principal Pops Conductor Yuriy Bekker, at the Charleston Marriott on Lockwood Blvd October 17 at 11 a.m. Whyte will share inspirational stories from the veterans whose portraits she painted, one from each of the 50 states, that comprise her new book, WE THE PEOPLE: Portraits of Veterans in America. Music by members of the Charleston Symphony will highlight the emotion of those stories, and Whyte will reflect on the life lessons she learned during her 7-year creative process.
