April 30 - Under the Baton: Music at Old Cedar Point
April 30 (Wednesday, 7:15 p.m.) Under the Baton: Music at Old Cedar Point. Join us for a screening of Sandusky Library's documentary Under the Baton: Music at Old Cedar Point. The 30-minute film chronicles the growth of Cedar Point Amusement Park through the rise and popularity of concert band music, which was a major form of entertainment at the park in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Oberlin College professor Dr. Steven Plank served as the Humanities Scholar for the documentary project. Some of the filming was conducted in the Oberlin Heritage Center's Monroe House, and on the Oberlin College campus. The film will be followed by a Q&A with Dennis McMullen of the Sandusky Library's Reference Services and Follett House Museum. Location: Kendal at Oberlin's Heiser Auditorium.
