Family History Writing: The Role of Music in Our Families
Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021 | 10 a.m.–noon
Music plays many roles for each of us and our families. For example, when we hear a song from our teenage years, it can bring back a flood of memories about what was happening in our lives at the time. Or when we hear our mother’s favorite song, it can make us think about her.
When we hear a contemporary song, it can evoke a range of emotions—either because of the lyrics or the music. For example, “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling” has frequently been played at weddings even though its words tell a sad story. In this workshop, we will write about songs that have been meaningful to us and/or other members of our families.
