The Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning at Hodges University will host a free lecture on the Romantic age of music. The lecture will be held on December 15, 2010, from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm at Homewood Residence, 770 Goodlette Road and 7th Avenue, in the Commons in Naples.
The grand Romantic age of music features many variations or “-isms,” and one of the most exciting branches is Nationalism. Nationalism opened the door to wonderful music from Russia, Scandinavia, Spain, and other countries featuring indigenous sounds from local instruments to folk tunes. What do Tchaikovsky, Bartok, and DeFalla have in common? Nationalism!
Conducting this session will be Dr. Ron Bowman. Dr. Bowman is the Vice President of Student Development at Hodges University. He holds a doctorate in music from Florida State University, and is a frequent lecturer on many musical topics in the community. A classical baritone, Dr. Bowman is the president of the Naples Opera Society and appears frequently in concerts and operas.
This session is free of charge but reservations are required. For more information, please contact Christine Wheeler at (239) 598-6210.
