Join musicologist William Brooks and historian Deniz Ertan as they explore how World War One sheet music was created, reproduced, and received by people who performed and heard it. Music from the exhibition, Chicago, Europe, and the Great War, will be performed as well. Come and hear tunes “We Don’t Know Where We’re Going But We’re On Our Way,” and “Private Alexander,” among others.
William Brooks is Professor of Music at the University of York. Deniz Ertan is a cultural historian and has taught at the Universities of Manchester and Nottingham.
