THE WORKS PROGRESS ADMINISTRATION CONCERTSOLD TIME RADIO - 1 CD - 27 mp3 - Total Playtime: 6:26:44The Federal Music Project (FMP), part of the Federal government of the United States New Deal program Federal One, employed musicians, conductors and composers during the Great Depression. In addition to performing thousands of concerts, offering music classes, organizing the Composers Forum Laboratory, hosting music festivals and creating 34 new orchestras, employees of the FMP researched American traditional music and folk songs, a practice now called ethnomusicology. In the latter domain the Federal Music Project did notable studies on cowboy, Creole and "Negro" music. During the Great Depression, many people visited these symphonies to forget about the economic hardship of the time. In 1939, the FMP transitioned to the Works Progress Administration's Music Program, which along with many other WPA projects, was phased out in the midst of World War II.EPISODES LISTWPA Concerts (01) New York City SymphonyWPA Concerts (01) Saxophone Sextette of BostonWPA Concerts (02) Manhattan Concert BandWPA Concerts (06) New York Civic OrchestraWPA Concerts (10) Illinois WPA Symphony OrchestraWPA Concerts (11) Southern California WPA SymphonyWPA Concerts (12) Forum String Quartette of New YorkWPA Concerts (13) New York Festival OrchestraWPA Concerts (14) New York Festival OrchestraWPA Concerts (16) US Navy BandWPA Concerts (17) US Navy BandWPA Concerts (26) Manhattan Concert BandWPA Concerts (30) Southern California WPA SymphonyWPA Concerts (34) Knickerbocker Little SymphonyWPA Concerts (35) Manhattan Concert BandWPA Concerts (37) New York Civic OrchestraWPA Concerts (37) Southern California WPA SymphonyWPA Concerts (38) New York State Symphonic BandWPA Concerts (39) Knickerbocker Little SymphonyWPA Concerts (44) Southern California WPA SymphonyWPA Concerts (49) Symphony Orchestra of Los AngelesWPA Concerts (51) US Army BandWPA Concerts (59) New York State Symphonic BandWPA Concerts (65) Brooklyn Symphony OrchestraWPA Concerts (74) Manhattan Concert BandWPA Concerts (75) New York Civic OrchestraWPA Concerts (79) Manhattan Concert BandBe Aware: MP3 CD WILL NOT PLAY IN REGULAR CD PLAYERS.
