Saide Singh ’23 and Grayce Walker ’22 will lead the McKelvy Scholars’ final discussion of the semester on Sunday at 6 p.m. Email the group for the Zoom link. Background for the talk:
It is imperative that you listen (or watch if you have access to Disney+) to the soundtrack of Hamilton in order to know what we are talking about in terms of characters, storyline, and musicality. You may be able to create an opinion just by reading the articles, but a lot of the arguments on either side are about the feelings that people have about the play as a body of art. We would like the effect of the play to be just as much a part of this conversation as its economic, historical, and otherwise structural implications. It is two and a half hours long and goes by quite quickly. Following along with the lyrics on your music streaming platform, Genius, or another lyric hosting website may also be helpful.
The full album is available on Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube.
