Springsteen and his Layered Lyrics

Bruce Springsteen expects attentiveness of his listeners. How do we know this? Over the past 50 years, Springsteen has written songs and created music that have been experienced by countless fans. But many don’t know the extent to which his work has been influenced by the American folk tradition. Through experimental reinterpretation and the creation of new traditions, The Boss has worked within known folk traditions, but at the same time, created new sounds and messages. In this session, participants can learn about some of the works that have influenced one of Jersey’s most celebrated musical artists.

What is Jazz and Why Does It Matter?

What is Jazz and Why Does It Matter?

Branford Marsalis once said, “What is jazz? It, It’s almost like asking, What is French? Jazz is a musical language. It’s a musical dialect that actually embodies the spirit of America.” Sometimes called “America’s Classical Music,” the tradition and history of the genre embodies the essence of freedom and democracy. From its origins within the slaves songs, to the advent of the blues, Dixieland, Swing, Bebop, and other styles, jazz exhibits how each individual (through his/her independence) must function within the framework of a group to better serve the entire community. In this session, through music and discussion, participants will explore jazz and why it matters.

The World Changed, so Did the Music

Did Prohibition change the music of the 1920s? And did the Cold War impact the music of the 1950s? Yes, music – concert and popular – music was influenced by the technological and political changes. From the late 1800s to today, the times have shaped what and how American hear and experience opera, concert works, musicals, jazz, country and folk music, and rock and roll. In this session, participants can tune into a discussion about the sounds, aesthetics, and auras of each decade in the modern era.

We’ve all heard those first three words of the preamble of the Constitution. But what does that mean? And can “We the people” mean different things at different times to different people? This complex topic can best be explored through historical moments and events. From sharecropping to immigration, participants can consider the concept of the changing meaning of citizenship and have an engaging and important dialogue about immigration today and the impact of the policies that affect us all.
