Join Iowa PBS for free, in-person, premiere screenings of Meredith Willson: America’s Music Man. This new, historical documentary follows the career of Iowa native Meredith Willson. A masterful musician, conductor, composer and Iowa’s champion on Broadway, Meredith Willson caught the world’s ear with his many talents. Following this special screening of Meredith Willson: America’s Music Man, attendees will have the opportunity to view historical artifacts featured in the film from the University of Iowa’s Special Collections and Archives. Light refreshments will also be served. “Meredith Willson embraced his identity as an Iowan all the way through his career in show business,” said Iowa PBS Senior Producer Tyler Brinegar. “This documentary shows Iowans just how inventive this man was to take all of his talents and experiences and apply them to what became one of the most popular shows in Broadway history.”
