Chicago's Musical Heritage, 1830-1920 Sold Out
Thursdays, 2 - 4 pm
June 6 - August 1 (class will not meet July 4)

This is the first of two seminars examining the people, organizations, and events of music in Chicago. The story begins before the city was incorporated in 1837, with dance music heard in local taverns, and will move to popular songs and minstrel shows. We will consider opera, which began in the 1880s, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, which gave its first concerts in 1891. At the turn of century there was ragtime and vaudeville, blues and jazz. We will discuss these developments and listen to representative recordings. Eight sessions, $190.

Guy A. Marco, who holds a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, has taught in eleven universities and written or edited more than fifty reference books. He has led Newberry seminars since 1996.
