Beyond the Trenches

  • The Missouri History Museum 5700 Lindell Boulevard St. Louis, MO, 63112 United States (map)

In our third annual partnership with the Missouri History Museum, Gesher explores music from the World War I era. From America to Europe, the homefront to the trenches, you’ll learn the stories behind the music from Gesher Artistic Director Sara Sitzer and hear live performances by the talented Gesher artists! Come early and view the World War I: Missouri and The Great War exhibit in the atrium just outside of the auditorium at the Museum.
