Music and Culture in the United States
A survey of the music and culture of the United States through study of the various social strata and ethnic groups which make up the fabric of American life. Music will be studied in the historical, social, and cultural context of the time in which it was created with special attention paid to historical periods such as the Civil War, the turn of the century, the Great Depression through World War II, the 1960s, and the present. Additional emphasis will be placed on the role of women in American musical culture and issues of class and race as they influence (and are influenced by) the development of musical styles.
An additional fee of $30.00 is required for this class.
