Happy Hour/Lecture by Foley Schuler
The White Lake Music Society’s Winter 2019 Lecture Series will feature three engaging and stimulating presentations! The last Tuesday of the month, from January through March, will showcase a wide variety of expertise and talent.
On February 26, Blue Lake Radio host, Foley Schuler, will speak on “An American in Paris: Gershwin’s Europe”. February 2019 marks the 95th anniversary of the premier of George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue – a watershed event in the history of music. Drawing upon a near-lifelong fascination with Gershwin and his work, Blue Lake Public Radio’s Foley Schuler takes the American composer’s music as a point of departure for exploring another of his favorite themes, the relationship between classical music and what is thought by many to be America’s classical music—jazz—tracing the influence of this uniquely American art form on European composers of the 1920s and beyond, through a combination of anecdotes, analysis and musical excerpts.
This presentation will take place at 7 PM at the Book Nook & Java Shop, 8744 Ferry St. in Montague. Admission is $7 at the door.
