SFEMS Lecture Series: Early Music in North America
This five-day lecture series will explore the fascinating and often overlooked history of music in North America before the mid nineteenth century. This course will focus primarily on composed
art music rather than the rich history of popular and folk music in North America. We will learn about five centers of musical importance. We will discuss how the religious and cultural foundations of each settlement determined its relationship to art music. No previous musical experience is necessary, come listen, learn, and join in the adventure.
Five independent, sessions led by John Prescott:
$125 for the full course or $30/day;
but $110 for the full course by SFEMS members or $25/day for SFEMS members.
