Event description

Description

Anna Celenza of Georgetown University will present on her latest book Jazz Italian Style, which reveals a forgotten chapter in jazz history – the development of jazz in Mussolini’s Italy – and demonstrates how this new musical style eventually influenced quintessentially “American” performers like Frank Sinatra.

The lecture is free for AICC Members and students with a valid university or high school ID. For non-members, the suggested donation is $10.
