All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914

All is Calm

By Peter Rothstein
With musical arrangements by Erick Lichte and Timothy C. Takach

"[Cantus] can transport audiences to parts of the heart rarely explored..."—St. Paul Pioneer Press

Hailed by Fanfare as "the premier men's vocal ensemble in the United States," Cantus presents the heartwarming true story of a truce held during World War I on Christmas night in 1914, exactly one hundred years ago. Using actual quotes and letters from soldiers, Cantus shares one of the greatest displays of true Christmas spirit in a dramatic retelling of this special event. 

This is final performance of All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 by the ensemble.

Bring the Kids for $1.

Tickets to this event include Museum admission.
