Music in Wartime: A Pearl Harbor Day Commemoration

For Pearl Harbor Day, we juxtapose three galvanizing musical responses to World War II by Dmitri Shostakovich, Arnold Schoenberg, and Hanns Eisler. With the Cathedral Choir and members of PCE conducted by Michael McCarthy and Angel Gil-Ordóñez. This program includes film clips of Pearl Harbor, the Siege of Leningrad, and FDR’s declaration of war on Japan. The concert begins with a wartime Eisler/Brecht workers’ song sung as a processional.
