Join Grammy-nominated baritone Randall Scarlata, soprano Melissa Wimbish and the ACMF musicians for a one-of-a-kind event exploring the songs and chamber music of World War I.  Trace the arc of the war through ripped-from-the-headlines masterpieces from Debussy, Bartok, Irving Berlin, Charles Ives, and host of others. Then, take a tour through the new styles and trends that arose from the war’s ashes, from neoclassicism to cabaret jazz.  With a whirlwind of short works on the program, this concert shows off the incredible diversity of music written during the biggest period of upheaval the world has ever known.
