ROMANTIC Plus: A Classical Musical Adventure - Session 1
with Liz Diamond
Schedule: This course will take place on Tuesdays at 3:00 PM for 5 weeks starting in Session I (3/9/21 - 4/6/21)
Please note: While this class is scheduled for 10 weeks (Session 1 & Session 2), students may take either one session or both sessions. The second session class is not a repeat of the first one but you must register separately.
The class is designed to share some of the most beloved pieces of the Romantic period (19th century), with a smattering of selections from Baroque, Classical and 20th century. NO prior musical knowledge necessary for enrollment. The goal is to inspire you to have a better understanding and (thus) more enjoyment of the available treasure trove of Romantic music! We will listen together with specific learnings, giving you tools to be able to find more pieces on your own that you love. Questions and class discussion encouraged! Optional assignment: oral presentation about a piece you love. Musical resources will be provided.
