Emmy Nominated Danielle Masterson from DinoTyme Productions to Lead the Sounding of TAPS in Battery Park, NYC

Fredericksburg, VA, August 15, 2015 --( DinoTyme Productions Inc. and the Institute for the Performing Arts (IPA) own Special Effects Coordinator Danielle Masterson is laying down her makeup brushes and picking up her bugle on August 16th to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the ending of World War II. Known as “Spirit of 45” the second Sunday in August has been set aside to honor the “Greatest Generation on their Greatest Day.”

The 70th Anniversary Commemorative Tribute will begin in the Western Pacific with a ceremony organized by the Philippine Scouts at the Manila American cemetery in the Philippines, and continue westward through Europe with individual ceremonies in countries where Americans sacrificed their lives in the cause of freedom. Ceremonies will take place at all national and state VA cemeteries, and local memorials and cemeteries throughout the U.S., before concluding at the National Memorial of the Pacific Cemetery in Hawaii.

As the New York State Director for Bugles Across America, Danielle is responsible for placing well over 250 buglers at more than 200 cemeteries and monuments across the land to sound TAPS during the largest wreath laying ceremony in history. In addition to coordinating the buglers nationwide, Danielle will lead 45 buglers in the sounding of TAPS at Battery Park in New York City to conclude the city’s planned celebrations. “I feel privileged and humbled to perform in tribute to all those who fought in WWII. This is particularly special to me because it is my way to honor my grandfather, John Masterson, who was a member of the China Burma India Theater, a coalition of the United States, British and Chinese Allied air and land forces.” Danielle said. She continued “To me sounding TAPS is the last nicest thing you can do for someone. While TAPS is only 24 notes long, it’s not hard to play but it’s the hardest 24 notes to play.”

Bill Carroll, founder and CEO of DinoTyme and the IPA said “Danielle never ceases to amaze me with her outstanding talents. Not only is she an Emmy nominated make-up artist, along with coordinating buglers to play at all military funerals in the United States to date she has sounded TAPS at 2,225 services”.

Please join Danielle in Battery Park at 10:00 am on Sunday, August 16th for the 70th Anniversary Commemorative Tribute in honor of those from “Greatest Generation on their Greatest Day”.
