Get an up-close, personal look at WWII through the eyes of a Toronto community at historic St. Andrew's, the regimental church of the 48th Highlanders. Join us as we mark the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII with a memorable evening of stories, letter readings, talks, archival photos, period music, displays and more.
This Music at St. Andrew's presentation will remember the church's 22 soldiers who died in WWII and tell the compelling stories of those who stayed behind at home. The multi-media program will include dramatic readings of soldiers' letters and a big-screen show. The show will feature archival photos and a soundtrack of St. Andrew's Congregants recalling their experiences as children and young adults during the war.
Foreign correspondent Brian Stewart and broadcaster/speaker Rick Phillips will offer their historical insights and explore the lessons learned from this global conflict. Lenny Graf and his Orchestra will perform the evocative Swing music of the era.
After the presentation, tour the 48th Highlander's Museum in the lower level of St. Andrew's, or enjoy beverages and snacks at a reception in the church's Great Hall.
Group discounts are available for ticket purchases of four or more. Children (ages 10 and up) are welcome. Voices of Peace, Dreams of Home will be a unique learning opportunity for young people.
