Where the Birds Never Sing - A Symphonic Tribute to America’s Greatest Generation” is a unique concert event combining the story from the award-winning, Pulitzer Prize nominated, Amazon #1 Bestselling book by Jack Sacco and the powerful score he composed as the book’s soundtrack.

The program contains approximately seventy minutes of original orchestral music tracing the story’s epic arc from a farm in Alabama to the beaches of Normandy to the gates of the Dachau concentration camp and home again. Each piece is introduced by narrator Jack Sacco as he tells the true story of his father’s emotional and victorious journey through World War II.


The result is a uniquely patriotic event that leaves audiences cheering for the magnificent accomplishments of America’s Greatest Generation.
