Genesee Valley Orchestra & Chorus in collaboration with Michael Lasser
The 100th anniversary of the end of WW1. Our special guest, Michael Lasser, host of the national radio program Fascinatin’ Rhythm, winner of a Peabody award, and our greatest expert on American popular music, will lead us through a historical journey of songs from the time of WW1. The songs of the First World War reveal the attitudes and beliefs of their time, especially since what we believed changed so quickly and dramatically. At first we were determined to stay out of Europe’s war. By the time it ended, we had become a different country.
