Join us as we mark the centennial of the end of World War I with a musical tribute to the war that changed the world. Starring baritone John Brancy and pianist Peter Dugan, this performance explores timeless themes of longing, loss, love, and the search for peace in the wake of catastrophe. It pays homage to the many composers who lived through, fought, and died in the war, and illuminates the way that WWI changed the face of music, song, and poetry forever.

Brancy and Dugan will perform pieces from a variety of composers, including George Butterworth, Carl Orff, Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, and Charles Ives.

This program will take place at the National Museum of American History’s new Hall of Music. Tickets are free but must be reserved in advance. Reserve tickets now.
