Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (October 13, 2018)

One hundred years ago today because of WW I, American soldiers were in Siberia. To commemorate this little known story about WW I, this edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion features Russian music. But why were American soldiers in Siberia during WW I? To rescue the Czeckoslovak Legion , a group of Czecks and Slovaks that volunteered to fight in the Russian Army during WW I in hopes of freeing their homelands from the Austro-Hungarian Empire. When the Russian Revolution occurred, they used the Trans-Siberian railroad to escape to eastern Russia.
