Lest We Forget: World War I Armistice Centenary Concert


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


featuring the Oratorio Society of Minnesota Chorus and the U of M Men’s and Women’s Choirs as well as Northrop’s newly restored, historic Aeolian-Skinner Pipe Organ


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 United States premiere of composer Patrick Hawes' The Great War Symphony—a four-movement, hour-long work for soloists, chorus, orchestra and organ.* Additional selections will include arrangements of wartime tunes. 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 U.S. premieres will be Nov 11 at Northrop and Carnegie Hall.
