Ep. 37 - N&SH: World War I (Pt. 1)
Mar 10th, 2021 by Notes & Strokes
Welcome to another installment of our N&SH series - Notes & Strokes in History!
This episode will center around the timeline of World War I, also known as "The Great War." This period of only a few years took a great toll on many nations across the globe, but that did not stop the arts. During this dark period of history, artists and composers of all styles and regions created works that showcase so many facets of the human spirit. But because World War I created such a shift in the arts, Notes & Strokes has decided to split it into 2 episodes. Pt. 1 - during the war, and pt. 2 - after the war. We hope you enjoy the art and music that was created during this historical landmark!
