|MUSIC AND LITERATURE: HOW THE TWO ARTS MEET
Offered by: Manhattan School of Music
Join an MSM teaching artist as they lead a lively discussion designed to engage middle-school students, comparing literary examples such as J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels with classical composers of the 19th century. Students examine song settings and programmatic pieces and with guided help, will learn to recognize poetry within the music. Preliminary questions and texts are given in advance as a starting point for this innovative exploration of the connection between language and music.
