Seventy years ago, President Truman met with Churchill and Stalin at Potsdam. German had been defeated, but the war with Japan continued. Truman thought some entertainment would lighten the atmosphere, so 19-year old violinist, Stuart Canin was invited to perform. The Hoover Institution and the Stanford Music Department will recreate the musical program with Canin and pianist Helene Wickett at a public performance at Bing Concert Hall that will be recorded for documentary purposes. In addition, an impressive panel of scholars has been invited to speak at the event: former Secretary of State George Shultz, historian Norman Naimark, and political scientist Scott Sagan.
