A Grand Concert to commemorate the Centenary
November 11, 2018
The whole of humanity had just known one of the worst moments in all of its history. One hundred years later to the day, November 11 2018 will be a particular moment, not only for all the veterans, but also for all those who have in their hearts the desire to create a better world, a world without war. For it will underline the end of a sad and devastating conflict – the end of the First Great World War.
On the program:
Pachelbel’s Canon (of Peace); Thaïs’s Meditation; some Ave Marias; Nearer My God to Thee; Beethoven’s Hymn to Joy, and several other works.
That evening is also punctuated by the reading of poignant texts, destined to help us become aware of the horror of that war, but also, and especially, to make us want peace for all the people of this world even more strongly.
