The Dress Circle: Songs of Remembering for Memorial Day
Beginning as Decoration Day and becoming the official federal holiday of Memorial Day in 1971, Memorial Day is a time to remember and honor those who have passed serving their country. On this week’s Dress Circle (5/24 7:00 p.m.), we’re offering a program of songs of remembering and memory in honor, not only of those who were lost in military service, but all of those who were lost trying to save lives during our current battle with covid-19.
Memories can be bittersweet, wistful, loving, and, at times, confusing, and for our songs of remembering, we’ll turn to “Evening Primrose,” “Romance, Romance,” “Street Scene,” “Saturday Night,” “Forever Plaid,” and “Something for the Boys” along with several others.
