The Listener's Guide to the Symphony Sold Out
Tuesdays, 2 - 4 pm
June 11 - July 30

This course is "Music 101" for the novice listener and a great vocabulary refresher for the inveterate concertgoer. The three "B's" -Bach, Beethoven and Brahms-will play prominent roles, as will Haydn and Mozart, the masters who established the prototype for the classical genres we know as the symphony and the concerto. Historical background will establish context for the progression through the Baroque, Classic, and Romantic periods, development of the modern orchestra, the evolving role of the conductor, the parameters of interpretation, and the value of music criticism. Tools for effective listening will have consistent presence in each session. Eight sessions, $190.
