Goodman salutes vets with LPO, WWII Museum
NEW ORLEANS- Actor John Goodman says he just wants to give something back to the men and women who fought World War II.
On Veterans Day, Goodman will take a break from producing a sitcom in development to narrate a piece as part of the "Honoring our Heroes" concert on Veterans Day at the National World War II Museum.
The Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra and the museum are producing the concert, which features the world premiere of composer Jake Runestad's "Dreams of the Fallen."
Runestad's piece for piano, chorus and orchestra is based on work by award-winning poet and Army veteran Brian Turner.
Acclaimed pianist Jeffrey Biegel and the Symphony Chorus of New Orleans will join the symphony at 7 p.m. Nov. 11.
Goodman will narrate "Lincoln Portrait" by Aaron Copland.
