Sounds of Ethnicity

Listening to German North America, 1850 - 1914

Barbara Lorenzkowski (Author)

Drawing connections between immigrant groups in Buffalo, New York, and Kitchener, Ontario, Barbara Lorenzkowski examines the interactions of German-language education, choral groups, and music festivals and their roles in creating both an ethnic sense of self and opportunities for cultural exchanges at the local, ethnic, and transnational levels.
