Last Friday, November 2nd, the President and CEO of MicroTech, Tony Jimenez, served as a Distinguished Narrator at the National Veterans Day Concert at the historic First Baptist Church in Orlando, Florida.
Themed “Patriot Dream,” the tribute event for Veterans and current service men and women was conducted by the non-profit award-winning VA-National Medical Musical Group (MMG) Chorale and Symphony Orchestra. Founded and directed by Victor Wahby, MD, the ultimate goal of the all medical personnel orchestra is to provide music that heals.
This was a repeat performance for Jimenez who has attended several other events with MMG in celebration of Veterans. This summer, he was a distinguished narrator at the Bicentennial Commemoration of the War of 1812 at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore. And in 2010, he was a part of the National Veterans Day Concert at the National Basilica. This latest performance will be aired in 2013.
Other notable distinguished narrators that have appeared in these Veteran-honoring concerts include: James Avery, Jim Bittermann, Pat Boone, Vikki Carr, Eleanor Clift, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Judy Collins, Kevin Dobson, Sam Donaldson, Lee Greenwood, Shirley Jones, Stacy Keach, George Kennedy, Deana Martin, Maureen McGovern, Ed McMahon, Cokie Roberts, Andy Williams, and Michael York.
An Army Service-Disabled Veteran himself, Jimenez has focused his company’s hiring efforts on Veterans, because he says their military training ensures punctuality and preparedness, and an in-depth understanding of mission objectives and company goals. “You can't go wrong by hiring a vet," he said.
