Inspired by the 100th anniversary of World War I, an army of musicians will transform the letters of soldiers from the war from pain into art. This original program is inspired by letters by Pittsburgh soldier Paul Howe (Paul Howe Papers and Photographs, 1902-2005, MSS 734, Detre Library & Archives at the Heinz History Center) and coordinated in partnership with Istituto Mondo Italiano.
This event features live instrumentation by international Italian flutist Luisa Sello, cellist Anton Niculescu, and pianist Aurora Sabia and readings performed by actor Charles Mengine.
The concert is a part of the project ‘Great Music’ supported by the Region Friuli Venezia Giulia and organized by the Association Amici della Musica of Udine and is included in the calendar of the Events for the celebration of the ‘World War 1915-1918.’
