Program Description
This program is an exploration into the connection between the descriptive power of words and music. Students are given the text in advance with some preliminary questions, and with guided help during the lecture discover how music can convey deep meaning without the need of words. Recent cultural phenomenon like Harry Potter are mentioned so students can relate to the composers of the past, and their need for interpretation of well known literature through music. We progress from looking at song settings to programmatic pieces, and learn how to recognize the poetry in the music.
Program Format
A Manhattan School of Music teaching artist will lead an interactive presentation.
Objectives
The students will:
- explore the connection between words and music
- learn to interpret literature through music
- draw connections to composers of the past
- discover the meaning behind music without text
