Bernstein as Teacher: Exploring the Language of Music

In this free CU on the Weekend lecture, Professor Keith Waters, Associate Professor Steven Bruns and Senior Instructor Philip Chang will show and discuss excerpts from Leonard Bernstein’s 1973 videotaped lectures, “The Unanswered Question.” Along with his masterful and entertaining explanations of musical compositions, Bernstein suggests some intriguing relationships between music and language in these lectures. The College of Music faculty will consider these relationships, and address other music/language connections in light of more recent approaches to the topic, drawing on examples from classical music and American popular song. 

Free required tickets will be distributed at noon on September 8. 

Saturday, September 8, 2018 at 1:00pm to 3:00pm
