November Kids' Concert: Parlor Music
Parlor Music, that do-it-yourself home entertainment medium, thrived in the years between the end of the American Civil War and the beginning of World War I in Europe. It was the way music was shred and enjoyed in many, many households both in the U. S. and England. Our November Kids' Concert celebrates Parlor Music as pianists Melody Puller and Mary Trotter and tenor Tim Westerhaus take us back to a bygone era of music. KPBX's Jim Tevenan hosts and plays a bit on another instrument popular in these years, the harmonium or pump organ.
