Event description

Description

A monthly series of lectures devoted to American music, particularly Grammy Award ® winners and their famous albums. We’ll learn and discuss what makes album a “hit,” the creative process in music, how do musicians achieve success in the record industry and what are unifying factors in winning albums (if there are any). Each lecture will cover individual albums/artists and over the course will include Frank Sinatra’s “Come Dance with Me,” Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” “Ray Charles’ “Genius Loves Company,” Taylor Swift’s “1989” and others. Led by Dmitry Tsvetkov, a musician, literary agent and writer.

This month’s lecture will introduce you to the musical legacy of Fred Astaire, one of America’s most famous and beloved dancers, choreographers, singers and actors. He is ranked as the fifth greatest male star of Classic Hollywood cinema by the American Film Institute. During his long career, Astaire won many awards, including Golden Globe and Emmy Awards as well as the Grammy Hall of Fame Award and Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

Join us afterward for our monthly Open Music Night at 7:30p.m.! Do you love to play music with your friends? Need a fun and free space to do so? Then join our Music Jam Club! The American Center will offer its space, microphones and sound system to all musicians and singers to play in great company once a month on Fridays. Bring your favorite instrument, sing your favorite song, strum out your favorite tune, meet new friends and have a great time.
