$10

oin us for our annual lecture series. December will feature Joshua LeHuray, Adjunct Professor of History.

Music was everywhere in pre-Revolutionary Williamsburg, 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.

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 an educator at the American Civil War Museum in Richmond. 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.
