From Bach To Rock






James Lovensheimer
Assistant Professor
Blair School of Music

Project Description

“From Bach to Rock” aims to examine American culture through the origins of popular music genres such as country, rock, and electronic.  Each month we will study one musical genre, with each member performing a different job while investigating various aspects of the genre. At the end of each month, we will hold a discussion about our findings with a professor (a different one each month). “From Bach to Rock” will culminate with an end of the year cultural exposition that will include student bands, several campus groups, and a discussion of the cultural significance of the genres represented. This will be a unique event because it will feature many different genres of music.
