Josephine L. Hughes Collection - Researched!: Spring 2016

Undergraduate research by students in MUSC 305

Invitation to Presentation of Research and Music

Everyone is invited to (the rescheduled) "Parlor Songs,"
presented by Trible Library and the Department of Music on 
Friday, January 29, 2016 at 4 pm
 in the Blechman Room. 

Description of the Event

This concert features historical retellings and musical performances of pieces of nineteenth- and twentieth-century sheet music from the library's Josephine L. Hughes Collection.

All pieces will be performed live by students, who will also share backstories that they researched in Dr. Ward-Griffin's MUSC 305W course in the fall semester.

Ranging from English ballads to saxophone ragtimes, these pieces provide a glimpse into the world of music-making in America before World War II. Admission is free.
