GAYle mAGee From 2014 to 2018, events around the world are commemorating and memorializing the Great War, which took place a hundred years ago. the majority of the art installations, concerts, and other public memorials so far have taken place outside of the united States, marking the stronger profile of the war elsewhere.

And each deals at least in part with music created to inspire patriotism and national sentiment, despite differing repertoires, performance venues, musical styles, topics, and countries of origin.
