CCA PRESENTS: Popular Music of the Gas Light Era

The CCA will present "Popular Music of the Gas Light Era," a free concert by pianist and vocalist John Root, at 2:00 pm on July 3rd at All Saints' Episcopal Church, 10 Billerica Road.  This program is supported by a grant from the Chelmsford Cultural Council, a local agency.  This concert is the first event to be presented by the CCA at another venue while our home is being renovated.

Popular Music of the Gas Light Era (1890 - 1920) features a delightful repertoire of instrumental and vocal musical styles from the turn of the previous century.  Everyone is invited to sing along and to experience the range of feelings evoked by this music.

The songs' lyrics offer insights into the customs and values of these bygone days.  Audiences also learn how American's ethnic and racial diversity created unique musical styles that continue to delight and inspire audiences around the world.

For over 30 years, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist John Root has been presenting programs featuring popular music from the first half of the twentieth century for audiences of all ages throughout New England.

Please join us for this wonderful start to the 4th of July festivities in Chelmsford!
