Lest We Forget – World War I Armistice Centenary Concert


Nov 11, 2018
04:00 PM until 06:30 PM


With the signing of the Armistice, World War I ended on Nov 11, 1918, at the "eleventh hour on the 11th day of the 11th month." To commemorate this milestone in world history, this Veterans Day concert will present the joint United States premiere of composer Patrick Hawes' The Great War Symphony—a four movement, hour-long work for soloists, chorus and orchestra. Select arrangements of wartime tunes will also be performed. In addition to the Oratorio Society of Minnesota Chorus, the concert features the U of M Men’s and Women’s Choirs as well as Northrop’s newly restored, historic Aeolian-Skinner Pipe Organ. Presented in collaboration with the U of M Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost.

The world premiere of The Great War Symphony will be Oct 9 at London's Royal Albert Hall, and the joint United States premiere will be Nov 11 at Northrop and Carnegie Hall.


$58 - $18
