Are you a pop music fan who has always been bored by the orchestra and classical music? Have you always wondered why it seems to be popular among a very select group of people? Have you thought about how pop, rock, rap, R&B, and other groups use the orchestra in their work? I am here to talk to you about all these things and more.
Each class, we’ll talk about one classical composer (Mahler, Berberian, Mozart, and Bach) and one modern artist (Radiohead, Jay-Z, Lizzo, Metallica, and Bowie).
All materials and listening examples will be provided in the class. Note that both classes in the week are the same and will discuss (for example) Radiohead and Stravinsky. Just two different times.
