Wednesday Hardscrabble: Music helped settled the Southwest

Music heard in the community in the early days of its development is the focus of December’s Wednesday Hardscrabble program on Wednesday, Dec. 19, from 6:30-8 p.m. at Bullion Plaza Cultural Center and Museum in Miami, located at 50 N Plaza Cir.

Join local musician Mariano Gonzales on an audio journey of our community’s musical heritage.

Also available will be a new booklet, “Christmas in Many Lands… Miami: The Great Melting Pot of the Nation,” a collection of over 30 interviews in the Dec. 15, 1920 issue of the Arizona Silver Belt, of how they celebrated Christmas in their native land. The booklets are $5 each and are available at Bullion Plaza Cultural Center and Museum and the Cobre Valley Center for the Arts.

For more information, call 928-473-3700.

Wednesday Hardscrabble programs are hosted jointly by the Gila County Historical Museum in Globe and Bullion Plaza Cultural Center & Museum in Miami. Programs are always free (although donations help pay utilities and bring in great programs).
