Clark County Historical Museum and the Historic Music Preservation Project (HMPP), are excited to have Sammuel Murry-Hawkins, HMPP Executive Director, present “The Historic Music Preservation Project: Preserving Historic Music for Future Generations” for this month’s CCHM Speaker Series.
The Historic Music Preservation Project is dedicated to the preservation and cataloging of historic popular dance sheet music published between 1880 and 1955. The Historic Music Preservation Project's commitment to introducing this music to a new audience is achieved through the performance of The Ne Plus Ultra Jazz Orchestra, an 11 piece ensemble which presents this music exactly as it was heard in its heyday. The organization also presents a quartet, Ensemble Gitane, performing music from the collection is the hot jazz style of Django Reinhardt.
The CCHM Speaker Series is sponsored by the Clark County Historic Preservation Commission and the League of Women Voters of Clark County. General admission is $5; seniors and students are $4; children under 18 are $3; and the evening is free for CCHM members, veterans, and active-duty military personnel.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive early, as seating is limited.
