B-CU instructors celebrate music from the 1930s
Imagine Atticus, Jem and Scout Finch sitting in their living room listening to the radio on a sultry Sunday evening in Macomb, Alabama. They would be listening to the works of American composers such as George Gershwin, Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Irving Berlin and Samuel Barber. Three Bethune-Cookman University music instructors will take us back to this memorable era during a free concert. Concert pianist Rose Shlyam Grace will perform with vocalist Curtis Rayam Jr. and clarinetist Jason Hastings. Seating will begin 30 minutes before the performance. Reservations are not required.
