CNN Original Series: Soundtracks: Songs that Defined History

The GRAMMY Museum

TUESDAY, MAY 16, 2017 AT 7:30PM-The GRAMMY Museum will host a special screening of an upcoming new episode of CNN's Original Series, Soundtracks: Songs That Defined History, an eight-part series from executive producers Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia (Seven Bucks Productions), and Emmy and Peabody Award winners Maro Chermayeff and Jeff Dupre (Show of Force). The series explores the music tied to pivotal moments in history. From the March on Washington to the riots at Stonewall – every episode will illuminate how music has played an integral role in celebrating, criticizing, and amplifying these seismic events in our collective history. The episode, "The Fall of the Berlin Wall," charts the course of the Cold War in Berlin through music revealing how it helped to sow the seeds of rebellion. After the Wall officially came down in 1989, a number of artists, including Roger Waters of Pink Floyd, put on concerts to celebrate. But it was a German band, the Scorpions, who came up with the true anthem of that moment in time, "Wind of Change," which captured the bittersweet emotions behind such a dramatic moment in history. Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion featuring Justin Jampol, founder and current executive director of The Wende Museum of the Cold War. The evening will be hosted by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman. This program is free. GRAMMY Museum members receive priority seating.
