Music is in our bones. From our earliest days oflullabies and learning our ABCs and singing around the campfire, music shapesthe way to relate to our world. Intensely personal and at the same time ashared experience, music is a way to process thought, express ourselves, andform community. As we trace the evolution of the American soundtrack from themid-19th to mid-20th century, we uncover the role of music as a reflection ofcultural norms and as an agent of transformation. Beginning with the push andpull of minstrelsy - the first uniquely American entertainment craze – we takea close look at how and why certain songs are woven into American culturalfabric, and the ways that pop and classical music feed each other. The seriesculminates with an unforgettable version of “Name That Tune.”
