Sounds of New Mexico Series
Admission is FREE
1912: A Musical Snapshot of America in the Year New Mexico Became a State was originally created to celebrate New Mexico’s Diamond Jubilee of statehood. As we delved into the music and the history, we became more and more fascinated with this complex and dynamic time. Not only was ragtime enjoying its second wave of prominence, but blues and Latin music were just coming into the mainstream. We found songs from suffrage movement, from the labor struggles, about cowboy life, and about the Titanic’s sinking – all from 1912. These wonderful popular songs serve as an unusual and entertaining way to look at American life in the early Twentieth Century. 1912 has been presented in concert halls, museums, and schools around the state of New Mexico.
