Memorial Opera House
Address: 104 Indiana Ave, Valparaiso, IN 46383, USA

Two Special Events On Monday, May 28, 2018!

Memorial Opera House was built in 1868 by the Grand Army of the Republic to commemorate the veterans of the Civil War, and stands as one of, if not the only, Memorial Hall that for 125 years continues to be used for it’s original purpose…a gathering place for the community and a salute to those who have given of themselves in service to our country.

It is only fitting that the Opera House will host TWO EVENTS on Memorial Day to honor the men and women who have given their lives to keep us safe.

10:30 AM: Memorial Day Celebration
The David D. Porter Camp #115 Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, accompanied by the South Shore Orchestra String Quartet, will present a special program to honor the Porter County residents who served in and/or gave their lives to save the Union. Admission is FREE.

3:00 PM: 12th Annual City of Valparaiso Memorial Day Concert
The concert will be performed by the Valparaiso Community/University Concert Band and will last less than one hour. The performance will feature patriotic band music, audience sing-a-longs and historical narratives. Admission is free, but audience members are asked to bring non-perishable food items which will be donated to the Christian Food Pantry in Valparaiso.
