Featuring the Oratorio Society of Minnesota Chorus and the U of M Men’s and Women’s Choirs, U of M Wind Ensemble, as well as Northrop’s newly restored, historic Æolian-Skinner Pipe Organ. With the signing of the Armistice, World War I ended on Nov. 11, 1918, at the “eleventh hour on the 11th day of the 11th month.” To commemorate this milestone in world history, this Veterans Day concert will present the Joint United States premiere of composer Patrick Hawes‘s The Great War Symphony—a four-movement, hour-long work for soloists, chorus, and orchestra. Additional selections will include arrangements of wartime tunes. This event is presented by the Oratorio Society of Minnesota, U of M School of Music, and Northrop. Presented in collaboration with the U of M Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost. Matthew Mehaffey, Emily Threinen, and Kira Winter, conductors
