Class 2: Classical Music | Coming into its Own
Date: Tuesday, July 21 from 7:00 to 8:30 PM
Orchestral music began in the Baroque Era (1600-1750) with masters such as Vivaldi, Bach, and Handel, but it really came into its own with the Viennese Classical (later 18th century) with Haydn and Mozart. We’ll explore some pieces from both those eras (and maybe a little later), expanding to composers beyond the usual suspects, including those of African heritage and from Asia, as well as celebrating the significant contributions of women.
For your comfort and convenience, this year the course is offered online, with class video replay available for up to one week.
