Many of the talented artists we present in our World Tour of Music concert series and other musical events help us expand our outreach with smaller public workshops across the region the week prior to their larger-venue public concerts. With many thanks to the libraries, senior centers, and other organizations who welcome us we are pleased to present the following public workshops. Watch this space for more events as we fill out our concert schedule.
URBAN TROUBADOR Music of the French Impressionists
SUNDAY, April 26, 2 pm Akron-Summit County Public Library
60 South High Street, Akron, OH 44326
Urban Troubadour, headed by flautist Jane Berkner, is an ensemble of top-notch musicians from Northeast Ohio. Don’t miss these introductory library workshops shown below . Urban Troubadour musicians will informally discuss the intertwining of French society and culture in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Using Power Point presentations of art and playing excerpts of music, they will show how French artists were involved with the Paris Opera, take a closer look at the music of Debussy and trace the migration of French musical style to the United States through the music of the flute.
These talks will provide a context for the big concert at The Akron-Summit County Public Library, 60 South High Street, Akron, Ohio, 44326, on Sunday, April 26, 2020, at 2 pm.
