American Heritage Lyceum Philharmonic will present “One Nation”, a musical tribute to Civil War Veterans.
This commissioned work was written specifically for the American Heritage Lyceum Philharmonic by composer Rob Moffat and was orchestrated by Rob Gardner. “One Nation” is billed as a musical production that features a professional cast of actors and singers performing original songs as well as letters and speeches from the Civil War era. Large screens displaying Civil War archival photographs will help to tell the story.
Lyceum Philharmonic Director Kayson Brown said, “‘One Nation’ helps our students to connect to veterans in an intensely personal way. Learning about the Civil War through preparing for a performance like ‘One Nation’ accomplishes what no textbook can. Living with this inspiring music for weeks, hearing the letters read, feeling the music and immersing the students in a presentation with such reverence, patriotism, and love of country, inevitably changes their perspective and helps them to relate to the men and women who sacrifice for our liberty.”
