The concert will last approximately one hour, with a reception and light refreshments to follow. The Manatee Village campus will close at 7:00pm.
This concert commemorates the 100-year anniversary of Armistice Day, the end of World War I. The Allies and Germany signed the armistice to cease hostilities on November 11, 1918, ending four years of one of the deadliest conflicts in history.
Culver’s concert will feature World War I era music, immersing listeners in history. They will hear music inspired by songs to which soldiers might have listened, sang, and danced.
