MUSIC IN THE LIFE OF EISENHOWER: General Eisenhower’s use of music to maintain the morale of American troops in World War II is vividly illustrated by the Airmen of Note, performing Glenn Miller hits. The VCO and select Pro Coro singers sample Eisenhower’s musical favorites. In-studio experts, students, and moderator Robert Aubry Davis examine Eisenhower’s rise to the top five U.S. presidents in polls by leading historians.

Our Mission: To perform fine music with the highest artistic integrity for the broadest possible audience and expand musical horizons.
