It’s called the Museum of the Pacific War, but why in the world is a museum dedicated to the World War II Pacific front in Fredericksburg, Texas, which is quite a ways from any body of water?
The Admiral Nimitz foundation is the parent entity of the museum, and as President and CEO Gen. Mike Hagee revealed, the name of that foundation contains the reason why the museum is there.
"Admiral Nimitz is from Fredericksburg, Texas," Hagee said.
Christmas Concert includes Bach, Saint-Saens and Hierholzer
It is a busy time of year, but the Fredericksburg Chorale are prepared and ready for three concerts Friday and Saturday.
"We have all ages: sixteen, seventeen, twenty-year-olds to ninety, and ninety-five-year-old members! It really is a great mix, and a delight to hear the teamwork," says director Mark Hierholzer.
Hierholzer will have a new work on the program and lead selections from the keyboard.
