Rosedale Cemetery Living History Tour - Los Angeles West Adams


History Comes Alive at WAHA's annual Living History Tour, "The Artist’s Way: Poets and Painters, Singers, Songwriters and Artists," on Saturday, September 23. They made music…and art, poetry, photography and dance. And now their stories will come alive with the landmark Angelus Rosedale Cemetery as the stage, as actors –– in costume and at graveside –– give first person portrayals of the lives of the creative souls who are among its permanent residents.

This year’s tour will evoke three centuries of music, from early ragtime and barbershop tunes to New Orleans jazz and Harlem Stride Piano, along with swing, jive and, later, Mod/Ska. You’ll also meet two Plein Air landscape painters; the daughter of a Civil War general who became an author and poet; a trailblazing photographer who bore an uncanny resemblance to Teddy Roosevelt; a Welsh poet/bard who later supervised the gardens at New York’s Central Park; and a dancer who appeared in Duke Ellington’s groundbreaking "Jump for Joy."
