Word Painting (Teens & Adults)

Using the device of word painting, music often tries to imitate the emotion, action, or natural sounds as described in a text or story. In this workshop, we will look into art songs, program music, and instrumental pieces mainly from the classical and romantic periods. What genius musical elements did composers use to convey the words and narrative behind a piece? Come learn about the magic they infused into their compositions and how various elements of painting, literature, and music were combined.

Held live on Zoom!
