Oral History of American Music (OHAM) was delighted to recently welcome students from the New Haven Academy, a nearby public high school. This year, the theme of their studies is “The American Experience." The students came to the Music Library to learn about OHAM and its documentation of major figures in American music. Since most teenagers are experts at social media, OHAM invited them to study some interview transcripts and recommend excerpts for OHAM's Instagram and Facebook. OHAM staff expect to post these excerpts in the weeks ahead.
