Lecture/performance and book signing

No composer's life was more exciting and surprising than that of Henry Cowell, who arguably did more to establish new American music than any other individual. Author, Joel Sachs, discusses the decades spent researching Cowell's life at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts and other repositories, and unraveling the mysteries that made writing Henry Cowell: A Man Made of Music a real adventure. Signed copies of Joel Sachs' book will be available for purchase.
