The First World War ended officially at the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day, of the eleventh month of 1918. On the 99th anniversary of Armistice Day, Nov.11, 2017, the Springfield Symphony presents their annual "Salute to Veterans" pops concert, honoring the history of World War I. It will be a night of music and reflection to commemorate both the victims and the survivors of the Great War, and will include readings of correspondence between Missouri soldiers and their families during the War. The concert will be a moving tribute to the battles we fought one hundred years ago in one of the bloodiest wars the world has seen. It's Saturday Nov. 11 at 7:30pm in the Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts. Tickets range from $17 to $36; call the Hammons Hall box office, 836-7678 or visit www.missouristatetix.com.
