About the Event
Our Virtual U series invites you to take a walk through musical history and examine the influence of several key artists, led by Age-friendly University educators Professor Stephen Armstrong and Dr. Gil Gigliotti.
During this session, Professor Armstrong will analyze the impact of Elvis Presley on 1950s culture and how Elvis helped shape a generation of young adults as he altered the music of the decade. John Lennon of the Beatles stated that "before Elvis, there was nothing." We’ll evaluate the meaning of that statement and examine what people listened to before, during and after the decade.
