The “Music of World War I” Veterans Day observance, featuring professional performers and hosted by American Legion Dexter Allen Post 90, begins 10:30 a.m. Saturday in the Emma Kelly Theater. This year Georgia Southern University’s Zach S. Henderson Library, the Averitt Center for the Arts, which owns the theater at 33 East Main St., and Joiner-Anderson Funeral Home are named as co-sponsors with the American Legion post. They are bringing nationally syndicated radio host and song historian Michael Lasser, vocalist Cindy Miller and pianist and cabaret singer Alan Jones to Statesboro to present a program of songs marking the centennial of the United States’ 1917 entry into what was then called the Great War.
