MEGA Monday Ocala: Your Roots are Showing, Oct. 8
October 8 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm
Join us for the next MEGA Monday on Oct. 8 from 12:30-1:45 p.m. in Humanities and Social Sciences, Building 8, Room 110, to hear about the origins of American music. Using video, audio and live piano examples, the Rev. Billy Wirtz will show how boogie woogie and blues left the lumber camps, grew along the circuit, and evolved into rock ‘n’ roll. Along the way, he will touch on gospel, jazz, and lesser known styles, and discuss how external forces after WWII, such changes in technology, shaped the music as well.
MEGA Mondays are an opportunity to discover the amazing service learning opportunities our students are participating in! Each session, new topics and guest speakers are presented, varying from animal rights to rape prevention.
Feel free to help our students achieve their service missions through their clubs. Involvement inspires our students! Food is provided.
