Music Appreciation

Two groups whose aims are to enhance enjoyment and understanding

Music Appreciation 2

Meets: 2nd & 4th Tuesday of the Month

Time:14:30 – 16:30

Our aim is to enhance member’s enjoyment and understanding of the whole spectrum of “classical” music, from early to modern, by informed listening. Each member has the opportunity to present their own choice of programme which may or may not have a theme depending on their own preferences. In addition to well-known works by established composers, there is often an emphasis on little known works or composers. Discussion is encouraged and this results in a varied, balanced and enjoyable musical experience. No prior musical knowledge or skills are required, just an interest in music and an open mind.

 

Music Appreciation 3

Meets: 3rd Friday of the Month

Time: 14:00 – 16:00

Sheer enjoyment of listening to good classical music in a welcoming environment. A varied programme is presented monthly usually with the consensus of the group members. One meeting could be centered around a theme where every member is asked to bring a piece of music that represents their thoughts on usually a one-word theme. The next meeting could have one member presenting a whole programme of their choice to members.
