Hearing America Change: the Songs of World War I

Historic Brighton is delighted to present "Hearing America Change: The Songs of World War I” by Michael Lasser on Sunday, October 29 at 2:00 p.m. This event will be held in the Brighton Town Hall auditorium, 2300 Elmwood Avenue. Michael Lasser’s talks are a mix of substance and entertainment, serious purpose and lighthearted irreverence. "I do think popular music has something valuable to tell us about ourselves if we stop and listen to it. It opens a revealing and entertaining window on American attitudes for the last 150 years. For the last 25 of those years, I've been talking about popular music as social history--about songs and the America they reflect.” The talk is free and open to the public. All are cordially invited to attend.
