Music at the Museum: Songs from the Golden Age of Radio
April 6, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm$25 – $30
The medium of commercial broadcast radio grew into the fabric of daily life in the United States in the 1930s and 40s, providing news and entertainment to a country struggling with economic depression and war. The National Museum of Industrial History is bringing music to the museum with a memorable evening featuring songs from the Golden Age of radio and tours of the 2019 Signature Exhibit “Don’t Touch That Dial: 100 Years of Radio”. Guests will enjoy performances by the Corinne Mammana Quartet and a chance to explore the museum with expert guides. Light appetizers & non-alcoholic beverages will be served. All attendees receive one complimentary alcoholic beverage. Cash bar available on site.
All proceeds benefit the Museum’s ongoing educational programs and exhibits and the care and preservation of its unique collections. Tickets are $25 for NMIH members and $30 for the general public. Ticket includes 1 drink ticket, light appetizers & non-alcoholic beverages, museum admission and musical performance.
With a sophisticated and soothing style, Corinne Mammana is an American jazz singer, songwriter, arranger, recording artist and bandleader. She is praised by JazzTimes for her “superb technique.” Her debut EP ‘Under an August Moon’ celebrates the Great American Songbook via a four-song collection of jazz standards from the 40s and 50s, as well as contemporary songs.
