Wreaths Across America Makes Stop At Mohegan Sun

Mohegan Sun to be first of only two stops in Connecticut on Tuesday, December 9th.

UNCASVILLE, CT (November 25, 2014)-On Tuesday, December 9th, Wreaths Across America will stop at Mohegan Sun as part of their annual pilgrimage from Harrington, Maine, to Arlington National Cemetery. After their 12:30pm arrival, there will be a touch-a-truck event in the Winter Lot followed by a 1:30pm Wreath Ceremony in The Shops at Mohegan Sun near the Mohegan Sun Box Office.

Wreaths Across America is an organization whose mission- Remember, Honor, Teach- is carried out in part by coordinating wreath laying ceremonies on a specified Saturday in December at Arlington, as well as veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond. Their week-long “Veterans Parade” between Maine and Virginia spreads their message about the importance of remembering fallen heroes, honoring those who serve and teaching our children about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families to preserve our freedoms.

The convoy consists of 150,000 wreaths which make approximately 12 visits to schools, veterans’ homes, monuments and communities along the east coast on their way to Arlington. The wreaths’ journey has become a tradition in itself, allowing locals along the route to share in the emotional and educational experience as the convoy passes through their hometown.

“[Menzel] sings beyond anyone’s idea of reasonable vocal or emotional limits…” – New York Magazine

“[Menzel has a] tear-down-the-house voice and commanding personality…” –Variety

Called “the Streisand of her generation” by The Denver Post, Menzel has captivated audiences at sold-out concerts around the world. Throughout the tour, Menzel will lead audiences through a special journey of Classic Pop, musical theater favorites and her own personal catalogue. The shows are set to weave together Menzel’s irresistible charm, wit and unparalleled vocal prowess.

In addition to gracing the current December/January cover of Redbook and Billboard in March, it was recently announced that Menzel will be the first-ever to receive the Billboard Breakthrough Artist of the Year award. She will be honored with the award at the annual Billboard Women in Music Awards on December 12th in New York City.

Her first-ever Christmas album Holiday Wishes, released October 2014 on Warner Bros. Records, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Holiday Albums chart and is already receiving rave reviews.

Menzel, the voice of Elsa in Disney’s Frozen, made history as the first Tony Award winner for acting to have a song in the Billboard Top 10 when the film’s Oscar-winning and multi-platinum song “Let it Go” soared through the charts. Frozen has since gone on to become the highest-grossing animated movie of all time.

Menzel currently stars as Elizabeth in the original Broadway musical If/Then, which is also nominated for a Tony Award for Best Original Score. Her performance has garnered great acclaim, with Entertainment Weekly raving that “she can shake the rafters and pierce your heart all at once,” and The Hollywood Reporter supports that there’s “no mystery as to why the audience adores her.”

Mohegan Sun Arena is now ranked consistently among the top venues in the world according to Billboard Magazine, Pollstar and Venues Today. It has won “Casino of The Year” at the Country Music Awards in 2008 & 2010 and in 2013, was voted “Arena Of The Year” at the G2E Global Gaming Conference in Las Vegas. Also in 2013, Mohegan Sun won “Casino of The Year” in 2 categories at the Academy of Country Music Awards. For more information on concerts and other great events visit Mohegan Sun.
