Do you love listening to classical music… but are uncertain about 20th century works? Most audiences would agree that different styles of music present different listening challenges, and the music of the past century represents some of the most demanding of all. Our guest lecturer Dr. Stephen Drury will provide a helpful understanding of this remarkable musical period while highlighting some of the major composers such as John Cage, Aaron Copland, Igor Stravinsky, Arnold Schoenberg, Philip Glass, and more.

Mozart: Romantic or Classicist or Futurist? And how do we know it's Mozart? We'll examine how Mozart arrived on the music scene at a pivotal time in European culture and explore how he shaped and moved the dial on form and expression. By cross-referencing other art forms of the time, we can see if Mozart was contemporaneously 'in-tune' with the ground swell and evolution of personal expression in the arts - leading the way toward Romanticism. Come hear Mozart up close and personal while holding a facsimile of an original score in your hands.
