Instructor Scott Foglesong answers your classical music and symphony questions and more in Fresh Look: The Symphony Exposed, a four-class course that has sold out in both its previous years.
Class 4: Music of Our Time | A Kaleidoscope
Date: Tuesday, July 28 from 7:00 to 8:30 PM
Beginning in the early 20th century and continuing to the present day, the music of the modern world offers a rich and multi-varied array of styles. We’ll dig into this kaleidoscopic banquet, beginning with Claude Debussy and moving through jazz-inspired composers such as George Gershwin, reaching the 21st century with works written within the past few years. Professor Scott Foglesong and California Symphony Music Director Donato Cabrera will close out A Fresh Look with a discussion about the past, present, and future of orchestral music.
For your comfort and convenience, this year the course is offered online, with class video replay available for up to one week.
