‘Music in Early America’ to be heard at library July 28

What did music sound like in the early days of America? Who wrote it? What instruments performed it? Muskegon Community College music instructor Donald Hoogenstyn will answer these questions at Loutit District Library on Thursday, July 28, as he presents "Music in Early America' at 7 p.m. Hoogenstyn will discuss colonial music during the John Adams years. He will present examples of both the folk music and some of the authored compositions written in colonial and Revolutionary-era America. Music presented includes works by Hopkinson, Billings, Phile and Carr.
