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.* 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 Joint U.S. premieres will be Nov 11 at Northrop and Carnegie Hall.
