At the outset of the Civil War, the hopes and aspirations of both North and South were echoed in music full of pride, determination, confidence, and even arrogance. As the horrors of war unfolded, the music turned more towards thoughts of home, peace, and the end of conflict. Join Dr. David Hildebrand for a musical survey full of familiar tunes, with the fascinating stories behind them. Dr. Hildebrand will perform and sing musical selections of the time, accompanied by guitar, banjo, flute, and piano. Children 3 and under must be accompanied by an adult caregiver. This program is made possible with funds from the Maryland Humanities Council. A Celebrating America program.
