The World Changed, So Did the Music – The 1960s – Thursday, June 7 at 6:30 PM

Did Prohibition change the music of the 1920s? And did the Cold War impact the music of the 1950s? Yes, music – concert and popular – music was influenced by the technological and political changes. From the late 1800s to today, the times have shaped what and how American hear and experience opera, concert works, musicals, jazz, country and folk music, and rock and roll. In this session, participants can tune into a discussion about the sounds, aesthetics, and auras of each decade in the modern era. Dr. Robert W. Butts, an award-winning conductor, composer and educator, will discuss this watershed period of history and the impact it had on the music of the time.
