Incorporating America, the Beautiful, this pop ballad-style piece is the ideal way to pay tribute to our military personnel wherever they may be. A strong choice for any patriotic program, it offers opportunities for solos, for small groups or younger singers to combine with the chorus, and for audience participation. Don't miss this inspiring musical salute to our troops!

Honoring the centennial of America’s involvement in World War I, the New-York Historical Society exhibition World War I Beyond the Trenches explores how artists across generations, aesthetic sensibilities, and the political spectrum used their work to depict, memorialize, promote, or oppose the divisive conflict.
