20TH CENTURY MUSIC IN THE U.S.
Minimalist, dodecaphonic, electronic, and aleatoric music, serious art music, experimental opera, bop, and free jazz: the twentieth century saw a plethora of musical styles flourish and falter. Let’s look back on the previous century to follow these trends and genres into the 21st century. We’ll listen to and analyze music of American-born and émigré composers Aaron Copland, Milton Babbitt, Charles Ives, George Antheil and many others. Bring an open mind and open ears!
