Performing Music

Performing Contemporary Music
Throughout the 20th century and into the 21st century, composers have sought to express the ever changing sounds of society and describe the accompanying emotions through music. We will focus on the performance and investigation of this body of work by exploring the extended techniques found in the orchestration. We will examine the ever-developing sense of harmony, the wealth of expression possible on the instruments, and the extension of this vocabulary into the realm of electronic music. In the practice rooms we will hold weekly coaching sessions and informal presentations leading to a public concert at the end of the semester. Students may take the course as members of formed ensembles. Choice of repertoire to be discussed with instructor. (Approval required; MUSC 0160 or equivalent; auditions will be held in the first week of November) 3 hrs. lect./disc.
