FLORIDA THEMES : MUSIC

The role of art and expression is one of the most defining characteristics of any culture. It is through examination and study of these works of creativity, one can see elements of a society that are not easily expressed in any other form. Music is one of the most expressive forms of art, and projects thoughts, experiences and feelings that others may have never experienced. Florida’s diverse musical history has ranged from the Native American songs of the Seminoles and the Creeks to ballads of the frontier and lumbermen, to the classical presentations of opera and culture. In addition to songs about Florida, numerous musicians wrote and produced music in Florida including Stephen Foster and others. The Florida Heritage Collection stives to provide works on the role of music in Florida's culture and history.
