Monday, May 9 at 7:30pm at the Clemens Center, 207 Clemens Center Parkway, Elmira, NY
At the turn of the 20th century, America saw its budding musical tradition take shape. Eclectic influences ranging from European Classicism to homegrown ragtime and jazz paved the way to a vibrant and experimental era. Dr. Azusa Ueno explores this fascinating time through the works of Charles T. Griffes, Scott Joplin, George Gershwin, Aaron Copland, and more.
