Event description

Description

The winter of 1943 was a grave, scary time. War in the Pacific simmered. Berlin burned in what Edward R. Murrow called an “orchestrated hell,” and on December 2nd, German planes bombed allied ships carrying mustard gas at the port of Bari, Italy, releasing the toxic gas and killing civilians. In America on December 8th, resounding across the airwaves, Toscanini and NBC Symphony responded to grief and anxiety of the moment with solemn concert of heroic Italian music by Garibaldi and Verdi.

(If you need assistance with online reservations, please visit the welcome desk at the Library for the Performing Arts' Lincoln Center Plaza entrance, where volunteers will make a reservation for you, even if you do not use email. For free events, The Library generally overbooks to ensure a full house. All registered seats are released 15 minutes before start time, so we recommend that you arrive early.)

This event takes place in the Library for the Performing Arts' Vincent Astor Gallery, at the Amsterdam Avenue entrance. The Library opens to the public at 10:30am, so attendees will need to wait outside until then.
