WWI Special Event - Sarah Kraaz of Ripon College

Keep the Home Fires Burning is the name of this morning's program by Ripon College Professor of Music Sarah Kraaz. Sarah will include popular instrumental and vocal music of the WWI era in her talk (audience participation is encouraged). Songs and instrumental music from the conflict help us understand the sentiments of soldiers and of the families they left behind. Music served many purposes during the war: to inspire patriotism, esprit de corps, make connections with home, entertain, and express sadness and longing.
