What Happens When Art Collides with Its Society: A Lecture by James Conlon was organized by the USC Thornton School of Music. Conlon is one of the world’s preeminent conductors—currently working with the Los Angeles Opera, the Ravinia Festival, and the Cincinnati May Festival—and an authority on music banned by Hitler’s Nazi Party during World War II.

At his lecture, Conlon explored how the rise of Nazism affected compositions and musical performances from the period. The Thornton School and Ross Scimeca of the USC Libraries have selected the following resources to help you learn more about the conflicts between art and society—both during WWII and today.
