War (and Piece)

Sunday, August 12 - 7:30 PM


Many of the greatest works in music history came to life in times of strife. Monteverdi invented new musical techniques to express the agitation of combat in 16th-century Italy, and Tchaikovsky's famed 1812 Overture has become an anthem for much more than just war.
