Join the Friends of the Bucks County Historical Society at their quarterly meeting for  The Music of the Great Migration, a performance produced and performed by Temple University Boyer College of Music and Dance students.  The Program will be ​narrated by Joshua Alan V Lee, a graduate student in jazz.  These Boyer graduate and undergraduate students have been dedicated to researching the culture, music and history of the time period around the Great Migration.  This informative, narrated program will focus on how six decades of jazz and northward migration are inseparably intertwined. Dessert will be followed by a short business meeting and the featured program.  Free and open to the public
