Quest Courses – Spring 2023 / Something Extra / MUSIC OF THE HEART

Coordinators: Frank Montaturo

Class members are invited to submit a piece of music that “speaks to the heart.”

The presenter introduces a musical selection of five or six minutes in duration, and then speaks briefly about the work’s creation, not from the standpoint of music theory, but most importantly, about its emotional significance.

The presenter then discusses first hearing, the significant emotions surrounding the music, and the piece’s enduring meaning.

Then participants listen to the selection together and briefly discuss it, giving their own reactions to the music.

There are two presenters per class. Classes meet one Monday each month at lunchtime as indicated in the schedule below.
