Music Listening | Adult

Listening to a live concert is an experience that can be as personal as it is communal. In this 4-class interactive course, you will be given a set of skills that will help you get more out of any concert situation. Think of it like adding various filters to enhance certain aspects of the music. RSO violinists Adrian Pintea and Ellen Cockerham Riccio will guide participants through the process of listening and draw them out on their reactions and impressions.

No assignments will be given outside of class time, but suggested listening lists will be provided for those who would like to strengthen their new skills. All you’ll need is a blank notebook and a good pair of headphones, if you have them!
