Members Only: Musical Metropolis
October 3, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$30
Dr. Kenneth H. Marcus, president of the Historical Society of Southern California, professor of History at the University of La Verne, and author of Musical Metropolis: Los Angeles and the Creation of a Music Culture, 1880-1940 (Palgrave Macmillan, 2004) will explore a cultural history of Los Angeles that presents how the study of music reveals the development of the city itself. Both diversity and decentralization characterized Los Angeles’s music culture with men, women, and children comprising both performers and audiences from a variety of different backgrounds: Anglo, Latino, African American, and Asian American. This lecture will take place at the Greene & Greene 1909 Crow-Crocker house.
