MUSI 255 - MUSIC IN CULTURE
This course studies music as an expression of the human experience within cultural context, following a continuum from music's traditional roles to the rich mix playing in today's global marketplace. Through reading, listening, filmed and live performance, the class traces the development of the "Western classical" art form through landmark works ranging from Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven to contemporary music. An introduction to fundamental music skills and vocabulary is included for the purpose of discussion and enhanced listening ability. Music's relationship with religion, drama, dance, art, and politics, as well as its role in defining popular, minority, and high culture, will be explored. Permission of Instructor.
