Broadway and the American Musical, Act II

Dr. Carolyn Black-Sotir, actress, singer and chair of Baltimore County Commission on Arts and Sciences

This is the second lecture/performance in a three-part series presented by Carolyn Black-Sotir. The American musical ranks as one of our country’s most valuable cultural treasures. Steeped in the music, movement, and words of the American people, it is an integral part of our heritage, offering us a means of connecting with our past while lending perspective and understanding to the present. It gives voice to our diverse national community—immigrant, European, Jewish, African-American—while reflecting our nation’s changing times. Broadway and the American Musical is a “3-Act” series exploring and celebrating our country’s most popular theatrical art form. Dr. Carolyn Black-Sotir, a recognized expert of the Broadway musical, illustrates through performance how the American musical reflects, influences, even inspires social, economic, and political change.
