      Music in Libraries in Hiawatha by Red Cedar Chamber Music

      Saturday, February 09, 2013; 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
      Red Cedar Chamber Music

      Flutist Jan Boland and guitarist John Dowdall commemorate the sesquicentennial of the American Civil War with 19th-c. American music that inspired the troops, supported the war effort and entertained those at home.

      The performers bring an Iowa perspective to the Civil War era, interspersing the music with conversation about the impact of the war, including readings from Iowa diaries and letters of the time and some of the earliest tunes published in Iowa.

      Performed on instruments from the period, the concert features poignant ballads like Aura Lee and Stephen Foster's Gentle Annie, lively dance tunes like Governor's Grays Schottisch and The Cruel War Quickstep, battle-inspired melodies like Ellsworth's Funeral March and Sherman's March to the Sea, fife calls that led the troops into battle and nostalgic tunes sung by soldiers both North & South like Auld Lang Syne.

      Music in Libraries receives support from the Iowa Arts Council, Cedar Rapids Bank & Trust, the Linn County Fund of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation, Nancy A. Miller and The Linn County Board of Supervisors Witwer Trust.
