CLASS DESCRIPTION

(Note: Extended Class Time) A myriad of factors and geopolitical events can influence and affect an artist or an entire art form, but perhaps none more so than war and political strife. Over four weeks, we will explore several of the composers and musical styles most affected by conflict in the 20th century, often considered one of the bloodiest and cruelest centuries in history. Whether it’s American populism, the serialism of the Austro-Germans, music for Soviet propaganda, or the development of American Ballet, find out how the harrowing 20th century conflicts led to some of the most popular and controversial compositions in the history of classical music.

Justin Vibbard has worked as librarian for Joffrey Ballet, Santa Fe Opera, Mostly Mozart Music Festival (Lincoln Center), Britt Classical Festival, Metropolitan Opera, Columbia University, and Aspen Music Festival. Justin is Principal Librarian for the Sarasota Orchestra and Librarian and Faculty for Sarasota Music Festival.

CLASS DESCRIPTION

(No Class on Jan. 21; Holiday) At the dawn of the 20th century, the musical cultures of two continents collided and fused on a third continent (North America), becoming “jazz.” We will explore the roots of America’s indigenous art form from its genesis to flowering into 1920s “Jazz Era,” and the 1930s “Swing Era.” We will use the recordings and live film footage to hear and enjoy the music of the men and women who created this unique American art form and include some backward looking perspective from where jazz has evolved to today.

Martin Adams began his exposure to jazz as a youth in jazz clubs in Manhattan, playing gigs, and running a jazz radio program during college. After a career in marketing with Eastman Kodak, he taught courses in jazz at the Rochester Institute of Technology (NY) and the Chautauqua Institute (NY).

Bring a ukulele and chromatic clip-on tuner to class. That’s all you need to begin. I’ll provide the rest. Makala, Lanikai, Cordoba, and Kala produce decent ukes for under $100. Don’t buy a baritone uke. Chromatic clip-on tuners can be bought for under $20 at most music stores.

This intro guitar course is for those who have little or no training in music or the guitar. It will be a step-by-step, interactive, fun approach to playing the classical guitar. Classical guitar is a solo style using the fingers (fingerstyle) rather than the pick. It combines melody, bass, and chords. We begin with the study of basic music reading, techniques, and tuning. At the end of the eight-week course you will be able to play simple solo and ensemble pieces. Individualized student requests concerning the style of the music may be addressed. You will learn a new language used throughout the world: music notation. Making music is a very satisfying endeavor that allows you to play solo classical guitar and also ensemble music with two, three, or four guitars.
Please bring the following materials: Classical guitar nylon strings ONLY – no steel strings; an electronic tuner; a music stand; and a foot stool.

CLASS DESCRIPTION

A light-hearted, but warm and informative look at what some consider the ultimate artistic expression—opera. Performing opera requires extraordinarily talented, well-trained, and highly disciplined singers who can memorize vast swaths of music written by history’s (and today’s) most talented composers. Opera singers perform in multiple languages, and are good enough actors to make believable some of the most exotic (and sometimes ridiculous) plots ever conceived for the stage. But that’s opera: extraordinary, astonishing, and absolutely beautiful! Bring a three-ring binder, your imagination, and a mind open to new experiences.
