This lecture, presented within the framework of the complementary course “Classical Music” (Arts & Aesthetics I), deals with the moving catalyst in music and the elements of arrangement choreography uses to translate this into movement in three-dimensional space.
“Classical Music” is a complementary course that combines music appreciation with music history in a multi-disciplinary context. A major theme of the course focuses on the role classical music plays when integrated into other arts, such as film, painting, and dance.
The course is taught by Beverly Sing, a musicologist on the faculty of the Liberal Arts Program and the Humanities Department at Dawson College.
