Letter To My Love,” by Rainey Jarrell (Atlanta, GA), honors military veterans and their families who served in World War II.  Take a “Sentimental Journey” through a time period that inspired many women to join the workforce and become the now-legendary Rosie the Riveters. Watch as our Rosies live through the joys and trials of such an impactful time period. The piece includes music by Rosemary Clooney, Vera Lynn, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, and many other favorites from the Big Band era.
