Music in the Chautauqua Movement
From 1874 to the 1930sBook - 2013
"This study profiles several famous musicians and introduces the reader to lesser-known musical acts that traveled the chautauqua circuits. In addition, it explores music's role in defining the chautauqua movement as "high culture," legitimizing the movement in the eyes of community leaders and setting it apart from vaudeville and other competing amusements"-- Provided by publisher.
