Millennium Stage: The United States Army Band “Pershing's Own” Chamber Players

  • The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts 2700 F Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20566 United States (map)

Following a return to peace in Europe in 1918, the Montparnasse district of Paris became an epicenter of creativity for composers Georges Auric, Louis Durey, Arthur Honegger, Darius Milhaud, Francis Poulenc, and Germaine Tailleferre—colloquially known as “Les Six.” This program features works for piano, as well as mixed winds and brass in a variety of chamber settings and celebrates the gradual and global return to societal normalcy in the months and years following the Great War.
