50th Anniversary of the Kennedy Assassination
Friday, November 22, 2013

John F Kennedy 540

"The life of the arts, far from being an interruption, a distraction, in the life of a nation, is close to the center of a nation's purpose -- and is the test of the quality of a nation's civilization."
- John F. Kennedy

On November 22, WDAV will mark the observance of the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy Assassination with special music throughout the day.

We’ll include pieces such as: William Kraft’s A Kennedy Portrait, commissioned for the 25th anniversary of the assassination; Franz Schubert’s Ave Maria, performed by tenor Luigi Vena at Kennedy’s funeral service; Leo Sowerby’s Thy Word is a Lantern Unto My Feet, an anthem written in memory of President Kennedy by the composer known as “the Dean of American church music”; and more.
