Peace, and All That's Good

'Peace, and All That's Good: Music and Poetry of the Great War Era' features poetry and select prose excerpts from writers who sought to capture the manifold experiences of war--gallantry, fear, anguish, loss--through creative expression. Artists from whom we shall read include Rupert Brooke, John McCrae, Isaac Rosenberg, Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon, Robert Graves, and May Wedderburn Cannan. Additionally, the SRU Jazz Combo will perform two selections from the Original Dixieland Jazz Band. The ODJB performed early jazz music at the signing of the Treaty of Versailles.
