Tuesday, October 9, 2012
(This program continues for multiple sessions)
Tuesdays, October 9 – November 27

2 – 4 pm

Led by Stephen Kleiman

In this class, musical questions you have always wanted to ask will be answered. A witty textbook and entertaining exercises will guide us from basic concepts to more complex elements of music. This class is designed for music enthusiasts rather than musicologists.

Stephen Kleiman holds an M.M. in music composition from the University of Michigan. An orchestra conductor in Europe and former music director of the National Chamber Orchestra in Washington, D.C., his new CD, Chamber Music of Stephen Kleiman, will be released in 2013.
