Henricus Lecture Series: Virginians Will Dance or Die!
Friday, May 21 | 7 - 8 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm)
Music was everywhere in pre-Revolutionary Virginia, from the public musical events enjoyed by the masses to the lavish private concerts and dances of the elite classes. Drawing on contemporary newspaper accounts, this lecture will explore how some eighteenth-century Williamsburg citizens experienced the growing musical world around them. Lecture will take place in the Henricus Church. Space is limited. Tickets available online only at Henricus.org.
Joshua LeHuray is the author of Virginians Will Dance or Die! The Importance of Music in Pre-Revolutionary Williamsburg, as well as an adjunct history instructor at Rappahannock Community College and the Education Supervisor at Henricus Historical Park. In addition to having presented numerous history lectures in Virginia, he appeared in the documentary How the Welsh Changed the World: The Tale of Two Tredegars about the Tredegar Ironworks of Richmond and its sister site in Wales.
