Lecture Series: Jazz Italian Style
May 4, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Anna Celenza of Georgetown University will present on her latest book Jazz Italian Style, which reveals a forgotten chapter in jazz history – the development of jazz in Mussolini’s Italy – and demonstrates how this new musical style eventually influenced quintessentially “American” performers like Frank Sinatra.
The lectures are free for AICC members and students with a valid university or high school ID, and a suggested donation of $10 for non-members.
