In honor of Veterans Day, students from the Princeton Opera Company (POCO) and the slam poetry group Ellipses teamed up to perform their interpretations of World War I poetry by British soldiers Nov. 11 in the Mathey Common Room. POCO students composed and sang original operatic music, while Ellipses members performed the poems as modern spoken word. POCO president Jonathan Choi ’15 said he was inspired to organize the event after taking classes on World War I poetry and wanted to share the history with the Princeton community.
