Topic: Dionysus and Apollo Redux, Part 2

Instructor: Professor Tom Benjamin

The creative tension between the expressive/emotional side of humans (and our arts) and the intellectual/classical side. These two aspects are often thought  of as opposites, but we'll also consider the ways in which both are necessary (in life and in art).

Continuing the December Listen! with lots  more music and dancing and art. Beethoven, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Balanchine, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, more African and Asian music and dance- and more!

All are welcome; technical knowledge of  music is not needed. This is the 12th 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.
