The Bowers Museum will host a presentation by Dr. John Koegel entitled (Re)Imagining California Mission Music and Californio/Mexican Musical Life in the Rancho Period and Beyond. Koegel is Professor of Musicology at California State University, Fullerton. His research focuses on U.S. and Mexican musical topics, particularly musical theater and opera, and music in the context of ethnicity and immigration. He will present a visually and musically illustrated history of mission music in early California, and will also discuss Mexican musical life during California’s rancho period and beyond. Koegel’s presentation is based on decades of research on these topics, as well as his in-progress book project Musical Theater in Mexican Los Angeles, 1840-1940, which has been supported by a National Endowment for the Humanities Research Fellowship.
