ListenUP! Musicology with the Experts

Speakers: Chris Wells, Braxton Shelley

We are so very excited to have a brand new special event in honor of our 10th Anniversary! ListenUP! Musicology with the Experts will be an afternoon of engaging conversation about the effects of time, place, politics, personality, and more on the blues, this music that we love. We welcome ethnomusicologist and fellow dancer Chris Wells along with University of Chicago music theorist Braxton Shelley for a fascinating exploration of Blues folklore, culture, dialogue across musical styles, and considerations for dancers today.This seminar is designed to help us all deepen our understanding of the music itself, and also our own connections to it.
