In this final year of the 2014–2018 centennial commemoration for World War I, Schola’s season, When the War is Over, will feature the East Coast premiere of John Muehleisen’s oratorio, But Who Shall Return Us Our Children – A Kipling Passion, based on the historical account of the death of Lieutenant John Kipling during the Battle of Loos and on the impact that his death had on his parents, Rudyard and Carrie Kipling.

In preparation for that performance, we have scheduled two readings of the oratorio that are open to the public. Walk-ins are welcome, even without a reservation.
