Live Music: Great Expectations

What do you expect when you listen to a piece of music, and how do you feel when that expectation is not met? How do composers use the unexpected to create music that sounds pleasantly unfamiliar?

With musical examples, audience engagement and performance, Christopher Corbett and Casey Ferguson attempt to answer these questions. From Beethoven to Poulenc, this 30-minute concert encourages interaction and introspection for visitors of all ages.

Performance times:

1:00 pm - 1:30 pm 
2:30 pm - 3:00 pm
