Come to the Florence Community Library for a comprehensive exploration of women’s bands across three centuries of American history!


Friday, March 1 at 5:30 pm, the Florence Community Library will host Dr. Jill Sullivan as she delivers her AZ Humanities presentation, Women’s Bands in America: Performing Music and Gender. This presentation traces women’s emerging roles in society as seen through women’s bands. Dr. Sullivan will explore town, immigrant, industry, family, school, suffrage, military, jazz, and rock bands, bringing music education and American history together in one discussion!


This program was made possible by AZ Humanities, and is sponsored by the Friends of the Florence Community Library. It will be free and open to the public, and will be held at the Florence Library and Community Center on March 1 at 5:30 pm.
