  • 12... Music@TheMuseum: Caerus Ensemble presents Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Federal Music Project, 3:00–4:00 pm. This program focuses on the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt, particularly his creation of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) and the Federal Music Project (FMP). The FMP showed the creative American spirit in the face of the Depression with new compositions that glorified and reminded people of their American pride. Composers such as Aaron Copland, Roy Harris, and Virgil Thomson wrote mostly orchestral works for the FMP, but also wrote a large body of chamber music. Pairing music with its historical context can elucidate connections between art and the people it serves. This program highlights the chamber music of these American composers, some of whom are not often heard; discusses the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt and how he created the WPA and the FMP; and looks at their positive impact on the American people. Let us know if you plan on attending by registering.
