Classical Music & Opera
Finding joy in music
Adults and Youth 16+
Join us for four 2-hour classes led by a skilled instructor with vast experience in a life-long exploration of how to find ever more excitement in classical music, seeking the utmost experience from music, both familiar and new. Guaranteed fun for everyone no matter how new or familiar with classical music.
In an air-conditioned home theater with state-of-the-art sound and video, we will experience samples of what can be thrilling, powerful, hilarious, sad and/or beautiful in music, both vocal and instrumental. We will explore, and learn from, differences in how each of us experiences music. We watch and listen to outstanding performances, seeking always to understand what makes them so moving. The goal is to expand our ways of experiencing what can make music and musical theater so nourishing and fun. Please bring an eagerness to experience new sources of joy, an openness to how others experience, and a willingness to agree to disagree about strongly held opinions.
