Renard Lecture: From Depression to Exultation – American Music in the 1930s

Americans in the 1930s may have been economically down, but musically they emerged in high spirits. The decade witnessed the first socially conscious songs and some of the best dance music ever recorded. Join us for a look at the decade in American music as we start out by asking if you can “spare a dime” and finish with a voyage “over the rainbow.”

Michael Shamosh is a musician and historian of American music.  He is a lecturer at Westchester Community College Collegium for Lifelong Learning.

Please note: Doors open at 9:30 am
