The Call to Arms: Music of the World War

Pianist Arne Sahlen concert

For the Bulletin

Pianist Arne Sahlen will present “The Call to Arms: Music of the World Wars” at Kimberley United Church on Friday, November 10 at 7:00 pm. Admission is by donation.

“A century ago today, we did not know how World War 1 would end; same for WW 2 some 55 years ago. We lived hour by hour, day by day with grave concerns about national prospects – and about family members at war, who lost contact sometimes for weeks or months.”

Music did much to comfort wounded or grieving hearts, build morale, champion Victory Drives, and even poke fun at the travesties of war. Sahlen will play and describe musical examples from Canada, America and England – some still famous, some sadly forgotten. They remind us that freedom is to be cherished and the countless sacrifices not taken for granted.
