WWI Centennial News SPECIAL
PART I: The Great Debate
This week and next week, we are going to break format as we present a 2-part special podcast version of “In Sacrifice for Liberty and Peace”.
This two part special is an adaptation from a live staged event the Commission produced on the April 6, 2017 centennial of America’s entry into: The war that changed the world.
Edward Bilous as the artistic director, and Chris Christopher as the US WW1 Centennial Commission’s executive producer pulled together an amazing group of artists, historians musician, actors, and others for a live performance staged outdoors at the National WWI Museum and Memorial in Kansas City to an audience of over 3,000 attendees.
For this 2-part special we have excerpted key moments from the story that unfolds, the music that was performed and the readings from a cast of amazing actors, orators, musicians and other luminaries.
Part 1 examines the great debate in America about getting into the war.
