The Sackets Harbor Vocal Arts Ensemble will pay tribute, through song, to the 272 Fort Drum soldiers who died in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan over the last decade. The choir will perform its Remembering the Fallen concert on Sunday, 3 pm, at Trinity Espiscopal Church in Watertown. The concert will feature soloists Diana Gamet and Phillip Addis.

Todd Moe spoke with Richard Probert, director and founder of the choral group, about performing Brahm's "Requiem" and Vaughan Williams' "Dona, Nobis, Pacem." Probert says Vaughan Williams, a soldier in World War One, used the poetry of Walt Whitman.
