BROOKLYN - Musical selections were played today by the ISO Symphonic Band at Green-Wood Cemetery to honor and remember those that have died while serving in the armed forces.

Tunes from some of Green-Wood's most famous song writers and composers that are buried in the cemetery, such as Leonard Bernstein, were played in addition to patriotic favorites. These concerts started 15 years ago, and this year marks Green-Wood Cemetery's 175th anniversary.

People buried in the cemetery are surrounded by the tombstones of fallen soldiers that date back to the Revolutionary War.
