Broadway and Tin Pan Alley
All Library locations will be closed on Monday, May 30, for Memorial Day.
The six-week America’s Music program is a film and discussion series that looks at popular music from blues to bluegrass, Broadway to rock ‘n’ roll. Each event features films followed by a discussion (and frequently performances) led by UMKC musicologist Andrew Granade.
The Broadway and Tin Pan Alley evening features the documentary Broadway: The American Musical: Syncopated City (1919-1933) (2004) and a discussion with Broadway historian William Everett.
Presented by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Tribeca Film Institute, and the American Library Association.
