DuBOIS — The DuBois Area Community Concert Association will be presenting “The Daniel and Marla Rodriguez Christmas Show” Sunday, Dec. 10 at 3 p.m. This concert will be held in the DuBois Area High School auditorium.

Daniel Rodriguez, the Brooklyn born, now retired police officer, helped bring the country an uplifting spirit of promise and hope with his stirring rendition of “God Bless America” after the 2001 World Trade Center terrorist attacks.

While singing was his passion from an early age, he joined the NYPD at age 30, where he became known as “The Singing Policeman.”

After arriving at the WTC site as a first responder, and nearly losing his own life, his music career turned into a calling. “America’s Beloved Tenor” inspires charities and concert halls all over the world. Daniel’s wife Marla began her career at the tender age of 5 on stage and has performed in operatic roles and as a guest soloist with symphonies all over the world and the United States. This will be a wonderful, uplifting concert to begin the Christmas season.

The DACCA has invited first responders from the police departments, fire departments, and emergency personnel in the local communities to be honored at the concert.

A reception will be held during intermission to honor first responders and to meet Daniel and Marla Rodriguez. It is also the concert association’s way of thanking concert members for their valued support.

Season tickets are still available for the remaining three concerts. Gift certificates are always available. For information, call Frank Foulkrod at 371-1764 or Marcheta Kovalyak at 653-2986.
