Sounds of WWI: Music and History of the Great War
Friday, April 07, 2017, 07:00pm

An assassin's bullet suddenly turned the calm and idyllic summer of 1914 into a war that brought many European nations into conflict. Eventually the United States became involved. In this era before radio, see how music of the phonograph and efforts of many well-known recording stars were used to raise armies and stir the emotions of millions on both sides of the Atlantic. From "I Didn't Raise My Boy to be a Soldier" to "America, Here's My Boy", music played a very large role in WWI.

Join musical historian & member of the Antique Phonograph Society , John Hauger, for this tribute to the Music of the War to End All Wars. Families are welcome and encouraged to attend. Registerat the Adult Reference Desk or call 734-426-4477.
