This very fun concert will show the audience just how music went from single monastic tones in the 9th Century to the explosion of musical styles we now celebrate in the 21st. The concert begins with medieval Gregorian Chant (including a “nudge nudge wink wink” nod to Monty Python!) and ends with music of Composer/D.J. Mason Bates and Frank Zappa!
In between we will explore how music advanced, from Gabrielli, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, to Dvorak, Joplin, Gershwin, and Bernstein. The audience will enjoy a much larger than normal “smorgasbord” of short musical works, so that the evolution of this most incredible art form (Music!) will be inspiring and clear.
