Never Forgotten Honor Flights Will Benefit from Tonic Sol-fa Concert in Wausau

Posted at 6:18 AM

Supporters of the Never Forgotten Honor Flight that flies veterans from 12 north central Wisconsin counties in north central Wisconsin to the war memorials in Washington, D.C. won’t want to miss a September 11 benefit concert featuring Tonic Sol-fa at the Grand Theater in Wausau. All proceeds from the show and pre-show activities will benefit the Never Forgotten Honor Flight, which is a non-profit 501(3)c organization and an affiliate of the Honor Flight Network.  Tickets are available from the Grand Theater ticket office by calling 715-842-0988 or 888-239-0421 or online at   Doors to the Grand Theater at 401 N. 4th Street in Wausau will open at 5:30 PM on Tuesday, September 11, for all ticket holders to enjoy complimentary hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar, silent auction and raffle.  The performance by Tonic Sol-fa will begin at 7:30 PM.  
The New York Times describes Tonic Sol-fa’s sound as “A vocal kaleidoscope… unique to the human voice.” Improvisational and passionate music combined with cutting-edge stage presence is the benchmark by which critics and fans agree: nobody does it like Tonic Sol-fa!

Although they are simply four voices and a tambourine, Tonic Sol-fa has spent considerable time on the road carving their niche as the nation’s top vocal group. In the midst of touring, this quartet has been named one of the top five “must see” groups in America, has been awarded numerous original song and album awards in pop, gospel and holiday genres, appeared on NBC’s Today Show and in the pages of Newsweek magazine. Outings with Jay Leno, Shawn Colvin, and Garrison Keillor have propelled album sales to more than 2,000,000 copies (mostly sold from the back of their trailer!) and have earned the group thousands of intensely loyal fans.

The Never Forgotten Honor Flight (NFHF) organization was founded in November of 2009 and serves 12 counties in north-central Wisconsin.   The organization has and continues to receive support from private and corporate donors as well as several veterans’ organizations in the area.  The NFHF organization has no paid staff, and the activity is managed and organized by a dedicated board of directors and a large team of volunteers.  The primary mission of the organization is to fly WWII and veterans from successive wars to Washington D.C. at no cost to them or their families, where they visit the memorials built and dedicated in honor of their service.  The ninth and tenth flights are scheduled to depart CWA on September 24 and October 22, 2012.
