James Armstrong Theatre [Torrance Cultural Arts Center] 3330 Civic Center Drive
Using a wide variety of musical ensembles, multi-media, and narration, this exciting and innovative event takes the audience on an epic journey through the familiar sounds of American war-time music from the Revolutionary War to today. Throughout our nation’s history, times of war and conflict have given birth to some of our most memorable and cherished music. Whether songs of love or loss, patriotism or protest; these are the tunes which were sung around pianos in our homes and in our town squares. They are the melodies heard on the radio and carried in the hearts of American servicemen to battle fields around the world. And this is often the music that would define an era, unite our communities, and help to heal the wounds of a nation at war.
