May 26 (UPI) -- Actors Joe Mantegna and Gary Sinise will host Sunday's National Memorial Day Concert in Washington, D.C.

Among the performers set to take the stage are Alfie Boe, Charles Esten, Leona Lewis, Megan Hilty, Cynthia Erivo and conductor Jack Everly and the National Symphony Orchestra. Sinise's Lt. Dan Band will also sing.

Expected to take part in the event are The West Wing alumni Allison Janney and Mary McCormack, as well as actors Graham Greene, John Corbett and Brian Tee.

The tribute to the U.S. military will air live on PBS at 8 p.m. ET from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol. The program will also be broadcast via American Forces Network so the troops who are deployed can watch it.
