Course Schedule – Spring 2024 / Art and Music / CLASSICAL MUSIC

Coordinators: Sol Makon, Peter Dichter, Pete Weis

Historically, Classical music and social/political structures have always been interrelated. A change in one has the potential to alter or transform the other.

We will explore different classical music styles, genres, composers, etc. that took place from around the 9th century through to the 21st century.

Presentations will provide greater insight and appreciation of classical music.
