On V-E Day, in May 1945, CBS aired Norman Corwin’s On A Note Of Triumph, an hour-long poetic rumination on World War II that examined the meaning of the victory over Nazism and what the future held for the world.

Carl Sandburg called it "... a vast announcement, a terrific interrogatory, one of the all-time great American poems." Billboard magazine lauded it as "the single greatest — and we use ‘greatest’ in its full meaning — radio program we ever heard."

For the 60th anniversary of the broadcast, the Los Angeles Radio Drama Network re-creates this masterpiece as a radio production on stage, with its swaggering eloquence, evocative sound effects, and Bernard Herrmann’s powerful musical score.

Among the cast are John Achorn, Dave Cox, Dale Evans, Michael Gough, Gretchen Johnson, Mitchell Landsberg, Stuart Lubin, Jesse Mackey, James Napoli, Melinda Peterson, Phil Proctor, and Yuri Rasovsky. Presented in association with the Antaeus Company. Directed by Tony Palermo. Hosted by Steve Bell. Sound design/engineering by Lawrence Everson.
A RuyaSonic Production.

Mr. Corwin will introduce the performance and discuss the program afterwards. 

The concluding passage to "On A Note Of Triumph"
