High School Matinee

Do you ever wonder how classical composers use sound and technique to create so many different moods and feelings out of only 12 little notes?  Join the Capital Trio in an exploration of the different tools in the classical composer’s toolbox for creating music that moves from joyful to desperate to exhilarated to lost, all while maintaining motivic unity and cohesion in classical forms.  Using works of Mozart, Dvorak, Walther and others, the musicians will take apart the score and reveal the small pixels that work together to form a much larger composition.  

Date and Time: Tuesday, October 25, 2022 at 10am
