The Art of Civil War

. May 19, 2015.

Spring is in full swing. Enjoy the Toledo Museum of Art’s Monroe St. Terrace for a free outdoor performance of the Dodworth Saxhorn Band at 2pm on Sunday, May 31. Soak up the sun as you are transported back in time during this historically accurate recreation of a Civil War era brass band. This event is perfect for fans of music and history alike, providing an opportunity for the audience to experience one of the most impactful periods of American history through the music which helped to define it.

Prepare for the concert with a lecture by Mark Clague, a professor of musicology from The University of Michigan. Clague will speak in the Little Theater at 7pm on Friday, May 28, exploring the important role of music during the Civil War era in “More Ballads Than Bullets: The Power of Song in the American Civil War.” These special events are in conjunction with the TMA’s exhibition, The American Civil War: Through The Artists’ Eyes.

Toledo Museum of Art, 2445 Monroe St. 419-255-8000.
