9.23.16 SeptemberFest 2016: Musik und Politik

Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall, 8:00 pm

Pickman Hall will be transformed into a 1920s Berlin underground cabaret filled with the music and words of members of the Novembergruppe. The radicalism and political satire of Kurt Weill, Hans Eisler, and Bertolt Brecht defined the artistic culture of Germany during the Weimar Republic.

Roaring 20s attire and accessories encouraged!

“Come gather 'round people where ever you roam…” Hear folk ballads describing the American experience from the Dust Bowl years of Woody Guthrie to Bob Dylan’s Vietnam Era. In an informal coffeehouse setting, students, alumni, and faculty will present this genre of song that awakened our national social conscience.
