The Classic Cavaliers are returning to Plymouth, Mass., to wow audiences at the America's Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration (AHTC) the weekend of November 18-19, 2016 for the event's Concert Series.
Under the direction of Gary Weisenberger, the Classics have been preparing for the return to Plymouth for several months.
"After the success of last year's Plymouth event, we're excited and honored that Classic Cavaliers will again be representing The Cavaliers in front of a welcoming crowd," said Chris Lugo, the organization's executive director.
Classic Cavaliers' mission is to raise funds for The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps, while providing alumni and non-alumni members the opportunity to celebrate their drum corps experience.
AHTC's mission is to educate the public while preserving our country’s important history, starting with the Pilgrim legacy and Thanksgiving story while recognizing all those who have fought to protect the American way of life. The 20th Annual America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration will be held at the birthplace of Thanksgiving, Plymouth, Massachusetts on the weekend before Thanksgiving.
