Have you ever felt like taking a step back in time? It would be quite an experience to see the sights and hear the sounds of a decade you’ve never seen, or maybe one you have seen that brings back fond memories. The opportunity to do just that has presented itself in “Victory through Harmony”Songs that Won the War. This event will transport guests to the World War II era 1940’s through song. Attendees will get to dance to Big Band music once again – or maybe for the first time.
