An American Requiem
Sunday, March 10, 2019 at 3:00 pm
St. Monica Parish
160 E. Silver Spring Drive, Whitefish Bay
This work by Richard Danielpour, inspired by interviews with veterans of WWII, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War, is a moving, unforgettable tribute to the American soldier and examination of the insanity of war. Danielpour wrote, “An American Requiem is not only about our relationship to war, but also our relationship to death as a part of life.” The event will feature a Color Guard to post and retire the colors at the beginning and end of the concert, as well as stories told by veterans themselves.
*Half price tickets for active duty military and veterans.
