Motown: Music That Moved the World

Registration for this event has closed.

Motown: Music That Moved the World - In Detroit in the 1960's Motown Records produced hits as efficiently as the Ford Motor Company produced automobiles - 110 Top Ten hits to be exact!  It was the "Sound of Young America" sung by performers like The Supremes, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder.  Using audio and visual content we'll trace the amazing musical journey from the power soul of "Dancing in The Streets" and "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" to the psychedelic soul of "Cloud Nine" and "What's Going On" to the pop soul of The Jackson 5.  Timeless music that moved us then and moves us now.

Gary Wenstrup is a reoccurring guest on the award-winning podcast “Something About The Beatles,” and has developed courses on the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel and Motown Records for College of DuPage and Oakton and Harper Colleges.
