Do you love listening to classical music… but are uncertain about 20th century works? Most audiences would agree that different styles of music present different listening challenges, and the music of the past century represents some of the most demanding of all. Our guest lecturer Dr. Stephen Drury will provide a helpful understanding this remarkable musical period while highlighting some of the major composers such as John Cage, Aaron Copland, Igor Stravinsky, Arnold Schoenberg, Philip Glass, and more.
