This class is "Session II" of Music History and Appreciation. Session I covered the earliest beginnings of Music History through the Baroque Era (the time of Bach and Handel), or "beginnings through 1750". Session II will cover Classicism (Mozart/Haydn, etc) through 20th Century. We will learn what "signature techniques" various composers used and what style was popular when they were writing as a means of being able to differentiate musical eras. We will listen to various examples of composers and musical styles. You need not have attended Session I of the class (late fall) in order to participate. However, you MUST email the Music Office to get your name on the list to receive printed materials needed for the class as well as zoom access numbers. Come and enjoy!

“We spend too much precious time and energy managing perception and creating carefully edited versions of ourselves to show to the world,” says Brene Brown, the author of the book I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t), but “our imperfections are what connect us to one another and to our humanity.” Join us this January and February as we wrestle with this book and its implications for our lives, our relationships with God, and with the world. We will meet via Zoom on Wednesday’s at 6:30 p.m. For questions or to let us know you plan on attending, please email Rev. Tiffany Keith at [email protected].

We will discuss the origins of Scripture, (Who wrote the Bible? How reliable is it?), how it was passed down for thousands of years, and why there are so many translations and commentaries today. You will come away with a better understanding of how to read scripture and how to choose a Bible or commentary that may be right for you.
