Classical Music Appreciation Series with Nicolas Krusek
May 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Come join us for the Classical Music Appreciation with the 4 part series with Nicolas Krasek.
Nicolas Krusek joined the Ambleside Orchestra as music director in 2010. An experienced musician, conductor, speaker, and educator, he has performed with and directed numerous professional, amateur, and youth orchestras throughout British Columbia and central Europe.
The purpose of this course is to answer two questions: How is music put together? How do we listen to it? We will consider some of the basic elements of melody, harmony, and rhythm, and explore how composers use these elements to achieve a particular effect. Our discussions will emphasize the importance of concentration and memory in understanding music and, most importantly, the role of the listener’s imagination. Our listening examples will come from a broad range of repertoire, from the Middle Ages onward.
He will be here on May 9, 16, 23, and 30th- 10 AM
Tickets are $40 + tax for Members
$45 + tax for Non-Members.
Refreshments, coffee and tea will be provided.
