"Walking Alone: Songs of World War II" Concert

National Churchill Museum

World War II songs trioJoin the National Churchill Museum for an evening of songs, stories, and insightful commentary on Thursday, May 9 from 6pm-7pm for the "Walking Alone: Songs of World War II" Concert.

"Walking Alone" is based upon the idea that everyone understood what was at stake during World War II, not only for the nation but also for each man in combat and each sweetheart, wife, and lover left behind. The program is a mix of oral concert and history lesson, highlighting everything from novelty numbers to portrayals of men in combat, but eventually focusing on the patriotic anthems of the day and the deeply moving love ballads of parting, separation, and the longing to return.

This event honors the Church of St. Mary dedication anniversary May 1969 on the Westminster College campus.

Reservations are not required but appreciated. Admission is $5.00 for adults 18 and over and $2.00 for children ages 5-17 and Westminster College students. Children five and under are free.

For more information contact Mandy Plybon, Education & Public Programs Coordinator for the National Churchill Museum at mandy.plybon@churhcillmemorial.org or 573-592-6242.
