Music in OhioeBook - 2004
Music has played an important role in Ohio's cultural vitality. In northeast Ohio alone, for example, a person may find the latitude of Ohio?s music to include one of the world?s most renowned and recorded symphony orchestras, the architecturally innovative Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, the National Polka Hall of Fame, and the noted collections of the Riemenschneider Bach Institute. Music in Ohio offers a comprehensive and ambitious look at music as it has been practiced throughout the state during the last two centuries, from folk to jazz to rock to polka. Author William N. Osborne also examines the music of the Moravians, Mormons, and Welsh as well as other religious music and choral music. He discusses the state's two major symphony orchestras, the Cincinnati Opera, and the May Festival. He also includes an overview of public school music-education programs and those of the principal collegiate institutions. With its generalist approach but significantly scholarly content, this all-encompassing volume celebrates Ohio's rich musical legacy. Music historians, music teachers, and anyone interested in Ohio's culture will appreciate this book.
