Fall 2018 Concerts:
The Price of Freedom (Two Performances)
This concert, with two performances, commemorated all veterans of American wars, particularly those of World Wars I & II, through music and poetry. Selections were accompanied by piano, organ, trumpet and violin and marked the human sacrifice of war and those who served. We then saluted in song the peace that must be shared by all.
The poppies – From the battlefields of World War I, soldiers brought home the memory of a barren landscape transformed by wild poppies, red as the blood of their fallen comrades. By that display of nature, the spirit of their lost friends lived on. The poppy became a symbol of the sacrifice of lives in war and represents the hope that none have died in vain. The use of poppies as a symbol was inspired by the poem “In Flanders Fields.” Written during the First World War by Canadian physician and Lt. Col. John McCrae, he was driven to write it on May 3, 1915, after presiding over the funeral of friend and fellow soldier Alexis Helmer, who died during the Second Battle of Ypres.
