"Chamber Music 101" presentation
When three or four are gathered in the name of music...
Chamber music can be far more intimate and personal
than a concert by a big orchestra, but it can also be just
as dramatic! But where did string quartets get their
start? Why is a Stradivarius so expensive? Who came
up with the four-movement thing? And more
importantly, what should I wear to the concert? (And
when should I applaud?) A flashy and fun
presentation that makes concert going simple again.
Great for fans, and perfect for newcomers—bring
someone to share this with! Additional Notes: The
course fee includes a free ticket to any of the concerts
by world-renowned ensembles in the Feldman
Chamber Music Society
series, which presents six
concerts annually in Norfolk, featuring many of the
most celebrated chamber ensembles in the world.

"Broadway: 100 Years in 100 Minutes" presentation
A fast and fun history of musicals presented in
two acts, from their origins in Burlesque and
Vaudeville, through Broadway's recent rebirth in
television shows like "A Christmas Story Live!" or
"Empire." Loaded with ultra-rare video and audio
clips, we'll look at how musicals have both led the
history of popular music throughout the last
century… and adopted every one of its greatest
innovations. If you haven't enjoyed my popular
"Big Music in the Movies" presentation at the
Naro, don't miss this event. We were discussing
"Hamilton" two years before the rest of the
country!

"Big Music in the Movies" presentation
Got your Oscar picks yet for 2018? How about Best Score?
I can help you there. Come to the historical Naro Expanded
Cinema and discover the movies' greatest secrets. Did you
know that when George Lucas was directing Star Wars in
1977, he needed something new for his theme music? John
Williams gave it to him: a style taken from…. an opera
written in 1869! His trick resulted in one of the most
popular and important film scores every written. Come
discover connections I have revealed between movie music and
Romantic-era music and the effect it has on you when you go to
the movies. Experience the second revolution in film scoring. It
will change the way you watch movies forever!
