Event Type: Library closings
Date: 4/2/2020
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:00 PM
Description:
 The struggle for women's suffrage was an important and hard-fought step toward gender equality. Music was one of the significant tools used in the crusade for a womanís right to vote. Songs were composed to advance (and to oppose) the agenda that culminated in the 1920 ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution. This program presents some of the most engaging and interesting songs of the movement, with historical commentary, in commemoration of the centennial of a womanís right to vote in America.

Rick Spencer and Dawn Indermuehle develop and present a series of theme-based music and history programs. They present songs that give cultural insight into interesting times, places and events in American history. Rick and Dawn carefully craft their vocals and accompaniment to sound as true to a songís era or style as possible. Their vast repertoire includes music from the Colonial era to the present day. Rick and Dawn use these songs to illustrate the evolution of our nationís culture and history in an informative and entertaining way.
