The All Saints Day concert, which originated 44 years ago, is performed each year in memory of deceased and living members of the greater Green Bay community.

Soloists for the program will be soprano Rita Baretta, St. Norbert College instructor and mezzo soprano Linda Feldmann and tenor Tim Olejniczak.
As is tradition for the annual concert, the program will conclude with the reading of names in a candlelight ceremony to celebrate living and departed saints, and a performance of "For All the Saints."
The 150-voice chorale will be conducted by Dudley Birder, and accompanied by a 40-piece orchestra composed of members of the former Green Bay Symphony.
