About Listening to Music:
Have you ever wondered what makes Baroque music, well… Baroque? What are the colors, sounds, rhythms, and pulses unique to the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Impressionist/Modern eras of music? Caroline Oltmanns, Head of the Piano Department at the Dana School of Music, Youngstown State University, will be your guide to putting the piano into the context of different time periods and styles. Whether this is your first-time exploring music history, or you just want a quick, fun refresher course, this session is sure to enhance your understanding and knowledge.
