Music Hum in a Day
Written by Bwog Staff
Slackers and music enthusiasts take note! From the Columbia Classical Performers comes Music Hum in a Day, a one-hour Sparknotes version of an entire semester of Music Hum and one more opportunity to write your concert report.
The Core-tastic program excerpts 14 pieces spanning 800 years of music. Columbia musicians, including members of the illustrious string ensemble fourbythree, and students in the Juilliard-Columbia exchange program, will perform all the pieces. For those currently enrolled in Music Hum, the concert will review of the medieval/renaissance/baroque/classical stuff you’ve already heard and give a taste of the romantic/neo-classical/modern repertoire to come later in the semester.
There will also be a lecture portion with a chronological tour of modern western music from ca. 1200 to present day. Elizabeth Lyon CC ’11 and Sam Bodkin CC ’12 will take turns explaining the musical, historical and CORE-related themes before each piece. If you’re lucky, maybe they’ll use sprechstimme!
The event, tomorrow, 8 pm at Miller Theater is free with some suggested donations. Check out the Facebook event here for more details.
