Bagpiper Michael Henry, a Strongsville resident, will commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day (the end of World War II) by playing two songs on May 8 at the city's Veterans Memorial on Freedom Trail.
Pipers around the world are being encouraged to play at 3 p.m. local time that day. Henry will play two songs, "When the Battle's Oer" and "VE75," a tune composed especially for this event.
Henry also played at the Veterans Memorial in November 2018 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1. The event is being coordinated through veday75.org
