This month’s meeting “Music in the First World War” is presented by Andrew Bullen of the Illinois State Library.

World War I has been called the most musical of all wars. Considered by some to be ‘The Golden Age of Sheet Music’, Mr. Bullen highlights British and American war experiences through popular period titles and will discuss his one-of-a-kind sheet music digitization project which is bringing the music of the Great War era back to life. Check out Bullen’s WWI Music Digitization Project online for free.
