Music for all: debunking the phrase “classical music is music for musicians.”
Led by Bren Shantz
Try to recall the most moving speech you’ve ever heard… Perhaps it was Winston Churchill speaking to the House of Commons in June of 1940. Or maybe it was John F. Kennedy delivering his inaugural address in 1961. Countless memorable speeches have reached our ears regarding war, religion, politics, civil rights, and many other topics through film, ink, radio and live oratory.
But what if you couldn’t understand what they said?
What if Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous “I have a dream” speech in Chinese? What if you turned on the TV and saw Jack Nicholson and Tom Cruise in the movie A Few Good Men, except they were yelling at each other in ancient Greek? Would you understand the drama? Would you be moved? Or would you just turn the channel?
Many in contemporary America suffer this same fate when they are exposed to classical music. Fortunately, the remedy is much simpler than mastering a foreign language! Come hear Bren share his passion for classical music and explore some simple, yet fundamental concepts that will begin to open this glorious world of sound to even the most reluctant listener.
