Songs of World War II

Saturday, September 25 | 1P | All Ages | Museum Auditorium | Free

During World War II, American soldiers marched off to battle, rallied their courage and reflected on life back home through songs. Americans on the home front kept their perspective and solidarity with the troops through music. Radio, records, and even movies were used to stir up and maintain patriotic fervor. Part of this program was repeatedly performed for World War II veterans (via Pillars of Honor) who gave our song selection an enthusiastic thumbs up!

Registration begins August 3.
