|AMERICAN VOICES: SONG AND CITIZENSHIP IN THE USA
Offered by: Manhattan School of Music
What do the songs and music you listen to say about you? What does a musical artist’s music say about themselves? Join MSM Distance Learning for “American Voices: Song and Citizenship in the U.S.A.” in which we explore American song throughout the 20th century, and how songwriters have used their music to foster social change or promote American cultural and national identity. Within the backdrop of major political and cultural movements of the 20th Century, including the Gilded Age, Progressivism, WWII, the Civil Rights Era, and Globalism. Live and historic performances ranging from Bel Canto Opera, New Orleans Jazz, Gospel, and Pop Music, this program will be presented in this not-to-miss exploration of American culture as seen through the lens of history and music.
