Classical Excursions – New York: A Musical Snapshot
Saturday, April 18 4:00 CDT and on demand for ticket holders
We’ll start the lecture series with a musical portrait of the U.S. city hardest hit by Covid-19. New York City has been instrumental in the development of American classical music.
We’ll start with the arrival of Antonin Dvorak in 1892 and talk about the influence of Harry T. Burleigh on his music which serves as a great stepping stone to George Gershwin and then it’s off to Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, minimalism, the uptown/downtown divide and more!
This lecture is available on demand. The link will be sent to you once you purchase a ticket.
