05 Mar Salon Series with Marc Magellan
Please save the date for the March Salon on Sunday the 10th, from 3-5pm, at my place in North Bay Village. Our friend Marc Magellan (assistant professor of Humanities at Miami Dade College) will lead our conversation, and we’ll be focused on the characteristics and qualities of Classical, Romantic, and Impressionist music. Marc says,”If You Can’t HANDEL me at my Classical, You Don’t Deserve Me At My Impressionism.”
This discussion will give us a fuller understanding of these historic periods in music, and leave us well-prepared to attend a New World Symphony concert on March 16 – featuring Mozart’s Overture to the Magic Flute, Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major (performed by the celebrated Hélène Grimaud) and Mahler’s Symphony No. 1.
Please RSVP here, and feel free to invite a friend (just make sure they RSVP as well so we have accurate headcount).
Marc Magellan is an assistant professor of humanities at Miami Dade College’s Kendall Campus. In addition to teaching and taking classes, Magellan plays guitar intermittently, goes to concerts and art galleries, eats great food, and attends cultural events all over the greater Miami area. Furthermore, he is an avid traveler who relishes any opportunity to visit the awe-inspiring edifices and museums of Europe, which is, coincidentally, where he learned what the word “edifice” means.
Salon Series is an intimate event series that explores classical music and opera through listening and discussion. Something like a hybrid between book club and house concert, this series is a project by musician, artist, and designer Rebecca White.
