Abstract:

In the late 1940s, an orchestra in Louisville, Kentucky was about to go out of business.

His vision of prosperity was focused on making the arts available to every citizen of the city. Music Makes a City tells the rousing, inspiring, nearly unbelievable story of an American city and its orchestra.
