Together with its partners, VOS organises several concerts to commemorate the Great War. With two performances in the United States, VOS creates a unique opportunity to highlight the Flemish spirit of peace and the bond between the US and Flanders.

The 'Great War in Music, Word and Image' will be performed in 2018 in symbolic places in Flanders (Ypres on 12 July, Winch on 30 September and Sint-Niklaar on 13 October). On 10 and 11 November the performance will be performed in Nashville, TN, USA. The project establishes a clear link between the USA and Flanders and focuses on the common history during WWI.
