Music Over There: The History of World War I through Song Lyrics

November 11, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 9:20 pm

First Parish Music Director, Brad Conner, will talk about World War I in honor of the centenary of the end of the war on November 11, 1918.

An expert of the history of American popular song, Brad will present songs which chronicle the progression of the war through clever wordplay and sometimes even unexpected humor.

Be prepared to hear a few songs you know by Irving Berlin, George M. Cohan, and others, but other songs you didn’t know existed addressing the darker side of the war including songs which were banned during the height of war fever.

Ben Sears and Cynthia Mork will join Brad for live performances.
