For the fifth of its 13-part series commemorating the 100-year anniversary of the end of World War I, the Lompoc Museum will host a program Sunday, titled “The Music of the Great War.”
The free event will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. at Stone Pine Hall, 210 South H St. Singer Sarah Raines and piano accompanist Tatsiana Peters will present a program on some of the popular and significant music of World War I. The audience will be invited to sing along to songs that had an impact locally, nationally, and beyond the U.S. borders. Light refreshments will be provided.
Raines is a local singer, actress and director. She has performed with Opera Santa Barbara, the San Luis Obispo Master Chorale and the Great American Melodrama.
Although admission is free to Sunday’s event, donations will be accepted, according to museum officials, and will go toward the enhancement of the World War I Monument that was erected in 1925 and moved to the museum grounds in 1941. Museum leaders and volunteers plan to have the monument cleaned and repaired, and also plan to create a surrounding plaza, in time for a rededication on Nov. 11.
The Lompoc Museum is offering programs related to World War I on the 11th day of each month through Nov. 11, which will be the 100-year anniversary of the end of the war. For more information, contact the museum at 736-3888 or email@example.com or visit the facility at 200 South H St.
