London’s vibrant cultural life and history provide the setting for an immersive three-week musical exploration throughout this world capital. From the serenity of Evensong to the raucousness of a West End musical, students will engage with a wide variety of musical genres spanning from Handel to Hendrix, famed artists who lived in the same London house, two hundred years apart. Students will learn to listen critically and analytically to music originating from a wide variety of historical eras and born from diverse circumstances.
An interdisciplinary approach will encourage students to consider music in relation to the art and culture surrounding its creation. Designed to challenge music majors and non-majors, students will attend concerts, visit historically significant venues, and participate in highly interactive class sessions. Journaling will be an important component of this course, prompting students to interact with academic and musical material, art, and culture both inside and outside of the classroom.Visit http://geo.uoregon.edu/scholarships for more information
