The year was 1912. Few historical events withstand the test of time.
In March of that year, the Japanese bestowed a gift to the United States by given her over 3,000 cherry blossoms trees. In April, a luxury liner named Titanic hit an Iceberg in the north Atlantic, on her maiden voyage and sunk, killing more than 1,500 people and in May, a tiny little chapel, located in Lake Mohegan, New York, was dedicated as the Church of Saint George.
This was an excerpt taken from the new book entitled, "One Hundred Years in the Making," a history of the old stone church, due out in the summer of 2012.
To commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Old Stone Church, the now, will be putting on quite the show.
A "Concert of the Century," featuring some of the best local talent your money can buy. On Tuesday, May 22 at 7 p.m., under the direction of Sarah Knapp with music direction by Steve Alper, the celebration begins. The program takes us through the decades, starting with the year 1912 through today; a journey of 100 years in music.
