A curator from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland will lead an Aug. 21 rock ’n’ roll listening session at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg.

The sounds that shaped rock ’n’ roll culture will be the focus of a listening session from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Aug. 21 in The Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg.

The conversation will be led by Nwaka Onwusa, director of curatorial affairs at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.

Attendees will learn more about the “overwhelming musical explosion, creativity and impact of rock ’n’ roll during the ’60s and ’70s … while uncovering stories and sounds that helped to challenge and propel rock ’n’ roll further,” the museum says.

Onwusa joined the Cleveland museum in January, coming from a post at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, where her work included curating exhibits on Motown legends, rapper Tupac Shakur, pop singer Taylor Swift, country musician Marty Stewart, the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival and more.

Admission to the program at the Westmoreland is $10, $8 for members and free with student ID.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
