The Rockwell Museum opens a Civil War photography exhibition from the collection of the George Eastman House in recognition of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. On April 29th, WXXI members are invited to view this exhibition and then hear from Michael Lasser, popular radio personality on WXXI. Lasser will give a talk at The Rockwell about songs of the War years, reflecting on music as a social history of the United States for the last 150 years. Joining Lasser is vocalist, Cindy Miller, and pianist, Alan Jones.
“Lasser brings enormous energy, wit, and authority. He has the stage presence of a performer with an expert’s command of his subject matter.”
