Summary

A reading with music and images from World War Two

Description

Performers Robert DiCicco and Cyndy Gayle present "Love Letter from The Front," a reading with music and images. The 1940s were the golden age of the American Songbook. It would seem that WWII and the music from that era go hand-in-hand. World War II was the centerpiece of the decade and, as one music critic wrote, “In a very real sense, American popular music was the popular music of World War II.” The war was an emotional period, and these songs tapped a reservoir of emotions: hope, longing, loneliness, and love. Love Letters From The Front takes us back in time to the war years of 1940-1945 when American GI's were sending off letters to their spouses and loved ones. This production showcases some of those letters with the appropriate song from that era as a backdrop. We take time out to honor those brave men and women who fought valiantly for our country during that tumultuous time, and will look forward to an evening of beautiful music and hope through "Love Letters from The Front." Complimentary refreshments.
