2021. 11. 08 More Quirky Characters
and Masterworks of Wind Band
Greetings, Music Lovers!
It is high time that we get together and immerse ourselves in the incredible music and unique people of the wind band world. It’s time for “More Quirky Characters and Masterworks of Wind Band!” This course continues the exploration that we began last year, of the lives and contributions of master wind band composers. Don’t worry, anyone can join in! In each of the 5 sessions, we feature a mixture of historical and biographical content and guided listening, sprinkled with participants’ stories and experiences. Led by our resident band geek, Dr. Taina Lorenz, this series will feature works from around the world, including a special session devoted to her favourite topics of sea shanties and drinking songs! Join in this engaging and entertaining musical jaunt around the world!
Sessions run 7:00-8:15pm weekly on Mondays, November 15 to December 13, 2021.
