Michael Lasser doesn’t sing, doesn’t dance and can’t act, but knows everything there is to know about American music!

He is a nationally-known lecturer, broadcaster, author, critic and teacher  and will add new dimensions to your teaching. 

In his presentation, Illuminating History, Mr. Lasser will feature music from the 1920s – 1940s, focusing on World War I and II, and how lyrics shaped and reflected the emotional intensity of this time period.  A special highlight will demonstate how a single song fits differently in two different decades. 

Presented by The Florida Center for Partnerships for Arts Integrated Teaching (PAiNT) and the Arts & Cultural Alliance
