About This Event

Presented by Dr. Ken Dye, University of Notre Dame.

Marching to Motown follows the rich musical heritage of African American music from 1868 to 1968, when the captivating rhythms of ragtime blended with jazz and transformed American music’s destiny. From the evolution of New Orleans Jazz to Big Band Swing and Rock and Roll to the Motown Sound, Americans danced, sang, and moved to an exciting rhythm and energy that entertained the world.
