An Evening with Irene Castle: A Chautauqua Presentation
Join us at the Glenwood Springs Branch Library on Thursday, October 17 at 7:00 pm for "An Evening with Irene Castle: A Chautauqua Presentation". Irene Castle, alongside her dance partner, Vernon Castle, were responsible, more than any other couple, for the rage in social and ballroom dancing that swept across America in the years leading up to the first world war. Irene Castle is presented by master storyteller and scholar Susan Marie Frontczak. This program is brought to you in conjunction with the America's Music film and discussion series taking place in October and November.
Garfield County Libraries was one of 81 sites selected to host the six-week program series, "America's Music: A Film History of Our Popular Music from Blues to Bluegrass to Broadway,” and this program is part of the series. "America's Music" is a project of the Tribeca Film Institute in collaboration with the American Library Association, Tribeca Flashpoint, and the Society for American Music. This program has been made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the Human Endeavor.
