Topic: How Music Works (well, mostly)

So what are some of the elements common to music around the world? If music is a universal language, then what are the shared aspects across time and cultures? We'll roam history and the globe in search of the elusive answers. 

 

Speaker: Tom Benjamin

All are welcome; technical knowledge of  music is not needed. This is the 18th monthly lecture.
       

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tom Benjamin,
a new TVIH member and distinguished musician and educator, will offer a series of music education lectures for music lovers. If you like to sing,, play an instrument, or just enjoy listening to music, this program is for you. This program is free and open to TVIH members and the public. 

 

   

Our Speaker: 

Tom Benjamin is a composer, music theorist, conductor and performer- only because he can't decide what he wants to do when he grows up. He tau ght music theory and composition for far too many years at the University of Houston, the National Music Camp (Interlochen) and the Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins, where he chaired the Theory Department. Tom has just retired from a wonderful 30-year gig as Minister of Music at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia. He's looking forward to a new and very different kind of teaching with the swift folks at TVIH.


Alan Coltri and Laurie Coltri will provide technical assistance in the zoom meeting room.
