Muskingum University will honor the life and legacy of one of its most illustrious alumni, John H. Glenn, Jr. ‘43, in a musical celebration featuring faculty and students at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 15 at the First Community Church’s North Campus, 3777 Dublin Road in Columbus. The Program, entitled

“O Beautiful for Heroes Proved,” will include the premiere of two new works, commissioned by the University and inspired by Glenn’s life. Admission is free and open to the public.

The concert will feature performances by Muskingum University’s Wind Ensemble, and the Concert Choir. The Wind Ensemble will premiere “Godspeed, John Glenn” by Ryan Nowlin, composer and assistant conductor of the President’s Own United States Marine Band. The Concert Choir will premiere “A Memory of Wonder” by Muskingum University Associate Professor of Music Dr. Zebulon M. Highben, on texts by Professor of English Dr. Jane Varley and Associate Professor of English Dr. Vivian Wagner.

Glenn, a native of New Concord and a member of the Muskingum University Class of 1943, served his country as a Marine Corps pilot, astronaut, and U.S. Senator. During World War II he flew 59 combat missions in the Marshall Islands, and in 1962 became the first American to orbit Earth. Glenn and his wife, Annie Castor Glenn ’42, served as longtime members of Muskingum’s board of trustees and as distinguished alumni faculty.
