The Great Indiana Songbook: Two Centuries of Hoosier Music

new

People love music! Everywhere in the world, we enjoy the magical combination of rhythm, melody, and meaning. The connection between performer and audience is both powerful and intimate – it might have even predated the creation of language!

Hoosiers love their music just as much as anybody else, and we’ve been making music in every corner of the state for a very long time. People in Indiana have mastered every style of American music, from bebop to gospel and hard rock to opera. As composers, performers, and audiences, we have made our mark on the history of music in America and the world.

Join the Great American Songbook Foundation as we celebrate our state’s birthday with an exploration of our state’s great music-makers!
