FSK Lecture Series: Musical Maryland: A History of Song and Performance from the Colonial Period to the Age of Radio

From the drinking songs of colonial Annapolis, the liturgical music of Baltimore's Zion Lutheran Church, and the work songs of the tobacco fields to the exuberant marches of late nineteenth-century Baltimore Orioles festivals, and the triumphs of the Baltimore Opera Society, David Hildebrand will shed light on more than 300 years of Maryland’s music history. His work touches on the development of music clubs like the Tuesday Club, Florestan Society, and H. L. Mencken’s Saturday Night Club, as well as lasting institutions such as the Peabody Institute and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. He will also discuss the wide range of music created and performed by Maryland’s African American musicians along Pennsylvania Avenue in racially segregated Baltimore, from jazz to symphonic works.
