(RESCHEDULED - October 23, 2020)
World War II was one of the most devastating wars in the history of mankind and took place between 1939 and 1945. Over 100 million people from more than 30 countries were involved in this global war, which was only officially over on September 2, 1945.
The Finest Hour is a celebration of this moment in American popular music, when European jazz, Western swing, blues and pop energized dance halls and radio waves throughout the country, ushering in the optimism, strength and freedom of a new era. From Billie Holiday, Gene Autry, Django Reinhardt and Bob Wills to the music of Lester Young, Doris Day and Bing Crosby, together these masters conjured an exquisite, never-to-be repeated Finest Hour in the history of American music.
