Hope to see you there!



In this course, we will explore how classical music tells a story. By listening to and writing about works such as Rossini’s comic opera, The Barber of Seville, Beethoven’s famous 9th Symphony, and Mozart’s Concerto for Flute and Orchestra in D Major, we will consider how aspects of musical expression and form create a storyline without a script. There will be two short writing projects, including a concert review where participants will apply their understanding of course topics to a live musical performance.
