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.
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.
The event was a great success, and the student performances were wonderful. Here is the slide presentation that accompanied the students as they introduced each piece of music and then performed it.
