The concert theme “On the Move” was chosen to correspond with the sesquicentennial
anniversary of the founding of Johnson City in 1869. To commemorate this milestone, AMEn
will perform a wide variety of songs relating to trains in honor of the historical connection of the
Tri-Cities region to the railroad. Concert selections will come from a wide variety of genres,
including jazz (“Take the A Train”), gospel (“Morning Train”), bluegrass (“Orange Blossom
Special”), and folk (“Peace Train”).

“This concert promises to be a fun change of pace for our ensemble,” said DeLong,
Artistic Director of AMEn. “We invite the community to join us in celebrating our region’s
railroading history with these well-loved songs.”
