American Musical Moments, a new concert series presented by the Canton Comic Opera Company, explores America’s popular music from 1890-1950. The concerts will feature both fondly remembered as well as unjustly forgotten music and performers, ranging from vaudeville to musical comedy, and from radio to motion pictures. This series will contextualize American operetta in the framework of the popular music of the period.
