The American Musical Renaissance and the Birth of Modern Music was the topic of the second session within the new Virtual Embassy Speaker scheme organized for its students by the Department of British and American Studies FF UPJŠ in cooperation with the Embassy of the USA in Bratislava on 12 November 2020.
Our guest speaker, Mr Bradley M. Gardner, Political and Economic Officer of the US Embassy, gave a wonderful presentation on the American musical renaissance from the late 19th century until the Great Depression. The lecture was open for everybody at the BAS Department and it was attended by 50 students who learned about American society, musical innovations of that time through Mr Gardner´s in-depth knowledge of the topic.
We are very grateful to Mr Gardner for his wonderful presentation and we also want to thank Ms Elena Raab Bianchi, Public Engagement Specialist of the US Embassy who co-organized the event and informed the audience about recent activities of the American Spaces in Košice.
