About This Event

The First World War ended officially at the 11th hour, on the 11th day, of the 11th month of 1918. On this 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, members of the Springfield Symphony Orchestra will perform a moving tribute honoring the history of World War I, including readings of correspondence between Missouri soldiers and their families during the war. The official start time for this event is 10:55 a.m. The performance will begin promptly at 11 a.m. with a moment of silence to commemorate both the victims and survivors of the Great War. This event is sponsored by Friends of the Library and The Library Foundation.
