Minnesota Veterans Home Concert

CP soldiers-singing DS2It was 40 years ago this week that America brought its soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines
home from Vietnam. In the course of that war our nation was reborn, just as it had been in
the Civil War 150 years ago.

In the music of the time can be heard the soul of the nation. Chorus Polaris sings songs of
the Civil War and the 1960s and '70s for the residents of the Minnesota Veterans Home on
February 28. We'll talk to the men and women who live there, and listen to their stories.

One of our songs is the American folksong "Shenandoah," arranged by James Erb for his
University of Richmond choir's tour in 1971. Listen to their original recording.
