Stand Up and Sing — Election Year Music

ID : 1475   
« back to classes page
Throughout American history, music has reflected the mood and opinions of the times — particularly election music.  In Stand Up and Sing, we will explore historic moments in U.S. elections and the music that helped shape those times. How did music play a role in the outcome? We’ll begin during the Revolutionary War and travel through Battle Hymn of the Republic, We Shall Overcome, This Land Is Your Land, Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In, Born In The USA, The Ballad Of The Green Berets, and countless others.  We’ll rediscover such artists as Marion Anderson; Woody Gurthrie; Bing Crosby; Frank Sinatra; Kate Smith; Nina Simone; Pete Seeger; Marilyn Monroe; Joan Baez; Bob Dylan; Peter, Paul and Mary; and the roles they played or didn’t play in the election of our Presidents. Bring your opinions, memories, and enthusiasm as we enjoy the lighter side politics.
