Johnson "Encore" performs at military luncheon

On Friday, November 16, the Johnson High School show choir Encore performed for current service men and women, as well as veterans at the Greater San Antonio Builders Association Building Believers annual Thanksgiving luncheon. Encore began the event with the National Anthem followed by "Salute to the Armed Forces," a medley of all five military hymns.

After an inspiring presentation by Todd Nelson, a wounded, decorated soldier, Encore concluded the luncheon with "The Irish Blessing." Before leaving, the students stood near the door and shook the hand of each soldier as they exited the building.

The students were honored to share their music in such a special way.

Encore member, Rosemary Pfaff said, "It was inspiring to get to spend the Thanksgiving season with people who gave us a country worth being thankful for."
