  • Overview

    From Hoagy Carmichael to Jimi Hendrix to John Mellencamp, Indiana has played an important role in American popular music. Louis Armstrong made his first recordings in 1923 at Gennett Records in Richmond. Jimi Hendrix played in Indiana a surprising five times, first as a struggling road musician, later as the biggest rock star America had ever produced. In this multimedia presentation, rock historian and college professor Randy Albright will share amazing stories of Indiana's connections to popular music.

    Luminaries is a weekday series that meets at 2 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of every other month for presentations about the Center's programming and the performing arts in general. Tickets for the presentations are $10 and include light refreshments.
