This form of music lends itself to communicating problems of the time period including lyrics and songs about Prohibition, The Great Depression, pre-WWII, and post-WWII songs. Students in this participatory program will be clapping, singing, and experiencing a time when music was played to express feelings, emotions, sorrow, and hope.
