Together we will get to know the Jewish immigrants who were the moving forces behind the creation of that Hollywood sound we know and love!  



Course Description :

Did you know that it was the work of Jewish immigrants who helped to establish that Hollywood sound we all know and love? As doors were closing for Jewish artists in Europe, they were opening in America, despite the Great Depression. Together we will discover how Jewish immigrants, some of them escaping the Nazi regime, established the Hollywood film score styles that became the prevailing standard around the world since the early 30's. It was part of the process that changed the landscape of American culture. As usual, anecdotes and stories will be told with audiovisuals and musical examples.
