Back by popular demand, this lively class combines music history and performance study with “field trips” to varied performances in the Vancouver area. Each term focuses on a specific genre of classical music, with special guest performers and lecturers from performing arts organizations.
Tickets for events are NOT included in the price of the course, and must be purchased separately through each organization.
