This group will focus on helping participants become more deeply intimate music listeners. At each meeting Jeanne will select a significant work from the classical repertoire and together we will explore how it evolves musically. For example, she will select a work for piano (perhaps a Haydn Sonata) that she will play and work with to expose significant themes and their transformations as it becomes an evolving, dramatic whole. Where possible, Jeanne will select a work that is about to be performed by the SF symphony or in one of the other local venues. No previous formal music preparation is needed.
