Motown: The Music that Moved the World

February 2 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

In Detroit in the 1960’s Motown Records produced hits as efficiently as the Ford Motor Company produced automobiles – 110 Top Ten hits to be exact!  It was the “Sound of Young America” sung by performers like The Supremes, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder.

Using audio and visual content Gary Wenstrup will trace the amazing musical journey from the power soul of “Dancing In The Streets” and “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” to the psychedelic soul of “Cloud Nine” and “What’s Going On” to the pop soul of The Jackson 5.  Timeless music that moved us then and moves us now.

Gary is an adjunct professor at the College of DuPage/CE teaching a number of Pop Music History Classes.

This program is free and open to all; no registration is required.

For additional information, please contact Samantha at samanthah@dkpl.org or at (815) 756-9568 ext. 1701.
