Caption: Leta E. Miller, Music and Politics in San Francisco: From the 1906 Quake to the Second World War
Body:

Leta Miller's latest book captures the spirit of San Francisco's musical life during the first half of the twentieth century, showing how a fractious community overcame virulent partisanship to establish cultural monuments such as the San Francisco Symphony (1911) and Opera (1923). A utopian vision (manifest in the avant-garde music scene of the 1930s and in the vision of composers such as Ernest Bloch, who headed the fledgling San Francisco Conservatory in the late 1920s) counterbalanced partisan interests and inspired cultural endeavors including two world fairs. Rampant racism, initially directed against Chinese laborers (and their music), reappeared during the 1930s in the guise of labor unrest in the musicians' union (including a lawsuit initiated by black musicians against whites, who were trying to monopolize employment in nightclubs) and vicious battles pitting administrators against artists in the city's Federal Music Project activities.

Albert Herring synopsis:
For years the straight-laced town leaders have chosen a sweet young thing to represent pure virtue at the annual Spring Festival. This year they can’t find a girl without moral blemishes, so instead of a queen they name as “King of the May” young Albert Herring, a timid clerk in his mother’s shop. When his buddies spike his punch at the Coronation Banquet, Albert goes on an uncharacteristic bender and can’t be found the next morning — much to the dismay of the townsfolk.
