The Westmoreland to host rock ’n’ roll listening session
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.
