American Music from the Revolutionary War to the 1920’s

What do you know about our country’s own music? Gain a new perspective on American history by listening to and learning about American popular, sacred, and serious art music from the Colonial Era through the 1920’s. Special attention will be paid to the influence of war music from “Yankee Doodle” and early military bands of the Revolutionary War, through popular songs of the Civil War, and precursors of jazz from the World War I era.
