Cathedral Concert Series - Armistice Day Remembrance
2:00 PM
Cathedral of the Rockies
On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, a peace treaty known as the Armistice was signed at Compiegne, France. The Armistice brought an end to the fighting of WWI -- fighting that had been going on for 4 years, 3 months, and 14 days. The numbers are staggering: in those four years, approximately 40 million civilians and military personnel perished on all sides of the conflict; 21 million people were injured. In one day alone, nearly 60,000 British soldiers were killed in a single day: just as if Bronco Stadium were filled twice and no one survived.

On Sunday, November 11, at 2 pm, the Cathedral Concert Series will present a concert that honors veterans in the US and abroad; remembers those who died; and focuses on how we can be a more peace-filled, loving, and compassionate world. More than 100 children, youth, and adult singers will participate in this event. We sincerely hope that you will join us for this extra-special commemoration of the end of WWI.
