Instructor Scott Foglesong presents a fun and stimulating journey through classical music for adult learners in four classes in Fresh Look: The Symphony Exposed. This is an introductory course that’s designed to enhance your enjoyment of all kinds of orchestra music.

Part One: Setting the Stage

We’ll start by tackling a pressing question: just what does a conductor do, anyway? After we’ve shone some light on that issue in addition to exploring their range and diversity (with the aid of many conductors and orchestras), we’ll explore the orchestra from its early days to the present, culminating in a trip through the orchestra’s sections and instruments.

Dates:  Wednesday, July 10, 17, 24, and 31.
