CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A recent graduate of South Mecklenburg High School is coming home to be part of a patriotic program with the Charlotte Symphony.

Midshipman 4th Class Adam Thomas is a member of the U.S. Naval Academy Men's Glee Club. Thomas graduated from South Meck in June and continued his music education with the Naval Academy.

"I have many fond memories of performing in the Charlotte area, and I am looking forward to performing with the Symphony," said Thomas. "I am excited to bring some of my new friends at the Academy home to Charlotte and let them enjoy some true southern hospitality," he said.

A Salute to America's Heroes program honors all who have served and are serving in the military. The midshipmen perform a wide range of sacred music and American spirituals, plus the famous "Naval Hymn," "Battle Hymn of the Republic," "Ave Maria," and more.

Conductor Albert-George Schram has previously collaborated with the Men's Glee Club. "I am deeply proud and honored to be able to bring these highly talented young men to Charlotte and introduce them to our Symphony and our audience," says Schram. "This Glee Club is extraordinary, and together with our Symphony, they will provide attendees with an evening of music they will long remember."

Performances takes place Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00 p.m. at the Knight Theater, located at 430 S. Tryon Street.
