APSU Pianist Presents Music Composed in the Shadow of Great Wars


Austin Peay State University LogoAbout 37 million people, both soldiers and civilians, died during the First World War. More than 60 million lost their lives two decades later during World War II.

“They were very affected by what’s going on, and it was coming out in their music,” Dr. Jeffrey Wood, Austin Peay State University professor of music, said. “They’re violent pieces.

Halloween should be filled with surprise and enjoyment, and following some common sense practices can keep events safer and more fun.
