Motown: Music That Moved the World - Attend In Person

About this event

In Detroit in the 1960s, Motown Records produced hits as efficiently as the Ford Motor Company produced automobiles. 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, presenter Gary Wenstrup will 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. Signup required.

For the safety of our community, masks are encouraged.

Gary has also lectured at over 90 Chicago area libraries. Gary’s Beatles presentation was deemed “The Best of the Best” by the Library Administrators Conference of Northern Illinois (LACONI). Besides being featured on radio broadcasts and in newspaper articles, Gary is also a reoccurring guest on the widely respected podcast “Something About the Beatles.”
