- Lessons of Darkness: Armistice Day 1918
November 11 at 3:30
West Building, West Garden Court
Armistice Day, November 11, 1918, found people throughout the world singing and dancing in the streets, once again hoping for a peaceful world. This program commemorates the 100th anniversary of this landmark day in history and presents works of composers affected by the war, such as Ralph Vaughan Williams, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Claude Debussy, and Maurice Ravel. The concert also includes iconic works by Stephen Foster (the American Civil War) and Simon and Garfunkel (the Vietnam War). Tapestry offers this program in the hope that we learn from our collective history—our Lessons of Darkness—and work together to avoid war.
