Program Description
Music of the Cold War
At a time when two nations competed on all fronts to assert their superiority, music was on the front line. Teaching artist Taisiya Pushkar explores the ways in which music defined the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War, from government propaganda to dissenting critiques of the times - with live performance, rare news footage and engaging discussion. A fascinating look into history through music!
Program Format
1. The teacher begins with a brief introduction, establishing terms and backgrounds relevant to the Cold War-Soviet Union and U.S.
2. The teacher then presents several musical compositions in Russian history through live performance, audio clips and historical images, to demonstrate the changing national and social landscapes in the U.S.S.R.
3. The teacher and class examine ways in which music contributed to nationalistic forces in both countries, using more live music, slides, videos, and critical questions to enhance presentation and discussion.
Objectives

- Use a variety of intellectual skills to demonstrate their understanding of major ideas, eras, themes, and developments in national and world history, through the lens of music and musicians
