    Thursday, October 18, 2012

    Museum Cafe

    Every third Thursday of the month start the weekend early at the Worcester Art Museum with artful entertainment and great company. Enjoy a sensory experience that features live music by dynamic performers and guided gallery tours.

    Motown was the music that inspired a generation, a trendsetting sound whose artists broke down racial, gender and societal barriers. This engaging multimedia presentation traces the development of, and interconnections between, the escalating popularity of the Motown Sound; The Sound of Young America, and the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s. From his perspective as a pop music historian, and with the help of archival video and music clips, Tom Ingrassia will take you on a musical journey back to a turbulent time in American history, when we were younger, crazier, and in loveand when we were all swinging and swaying to the sound that reigned supreme!
