FILM: America’s Musical Journey

Aug 13, Saturday - 10am
Tech Interactive Stage

Narrated by Morgan Freeman, this visually-stunning film is a cross-country adventure through the musical heritage of America and the cultural cities where America’s music was born. Watch it on the largest IMAX dome screen in the West, inside inside the Tech Interactive.

In America’s musical cities, every chord, every riff, every bang of a drum tells a story. In America’s Musical Journey, these stories come together to create a soundtrack for the American experience—a soundtrack that showcases the nation’s diversity and its collision of cultures, culminating in a unique blend of sound, music and innovation unlike anywhere else in the world

The film follows singer/songwriter Aloe Blacc as he traces the roots of American music and explores the great musical cities—places like New Orleans, Chicago, Nashville, Miami, New York City and more—where such electrifying art forms as jazz, the blues, country, soul and rock and roll were born.

Film is approximately one hour in length.
