Course Description: Courses on topics beyond the scope of existing departmental offerings. See Schedule of Courses for specific titles. No prerequisite. May be counted toward the major/minor with Instructor permission.
Section Description: In this course, students will attend live performances in a variety of genres, including: folk, jazz, classical, and world music. One third of the course will be attending the performances, with some events including pre-concert talks by the performers. Concerts and recitals will include Lane Series events, as well as those presented by Department of Music and Dance faculty and students. The other two thirds of this course will consist of hearing, studying, presenting, and discussing information about the genres, pieces to be performed, and/or performers prior to each event to learn about the music and musicians. The goal is for students to listen more expertly based on cultural, historical, and/or musical knowledge gained through the informational presentations and discussions.
