Amici Musicae: Music as a Mirror of History
May 14, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm | Joy Theatre
Organizer: Windsor Symphony Orchestra
Amici Musicae is a group of people who share a great interest in the arts, music in particular. Everyone is welcome – just bring an inquisitive mind and the desire to meet new friends! These events are free, though donations to the WSO are accepted and appreciated! Your donations will support the WSO’s education and outreach programs in our community.
An opportunity for classical music lovers to deepen their knowledge of music begins again in March, from 1:30pm-3:30pm. With the cooperation of The Great Courses, the WSO will be hosting a series of lectures, both live and pre-recorded, on how music informs, delights, and intensifies experience and meaning. As a mirror of events, it can shed light and deliver understanding beyond that of almost any other medium.
Lecture 17: Holst (1919) Ode to Death – The Somme and The English Experience
Lecture 18: Shostakovich (1962) Symphony No. 13 – Russia Revisited
