- Illinois State Museum, Springfield
Join us as Phil Passen shares music from Illinois history on the hammered dulcimer. Passen, who resides in Chicago, will play, sing, and discuss the narrative of women in society. Participants will learn the ways in which songs supported the changes sought in the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
This program is part of the “Standing on Her Shoulders” series presented by Academy of Lifelong Learning at LLCC and the Illinois State Museum with the support of Illinois Humanities. Additional programs will include a talk entitled “Casting a Historic Vote: Suffrage in Illinois” by Jeanne Schultz Angel on Sunday, July 21 and a program to be announced in September. All programs will take place in the Thorne Deuel Auditorium. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (217) 558-6696.
