By the late eighteenth century Philadelphia was the musical capital of America, a position it would hold into the early nineteenth century. Music of Colonial Philadelphia explores the music of Philadelphia from the 1670s to 1770s. The presentation will combine lecture, archival images, and recorded examples featuring important individuals, events, and sites that shaped the city’s emerging musical culture in the colonial period.
Join us as when Laurel Hill hosts Jack McCarthy, long-time Philadelphia archivist and historian, on this wonderful exploration of colonial music in Philadelphia.
