American Music Listening Sessions

28 Apr 2016 - 23 Jun 2016

Join us every last Thursday of the month* for an evening of music and sharing ideas led by The American Music Listening Group from The University of Nottingham.
 
The American Music Listening Group is a small, informal group of academics, students and other interested parties associated with the University of Nottingham’s Department of American and Canadian Studies. The group meets regularly to play and discuss music of any and every type that has a connection to American culture. No one among them is a trained musicologist or competent musician! They just enjoy listening to and sharing their impressions and ideas about music.
 
Please come and join us!
