“20 by 20: Twentieth century music from 20 degrees of Latitude”
Dulcina will lead a Zoom playing session of 20th century music from cities that lie between the 39th and 59th parallels. It will feature music from France, Canada, the U.S., and Estonia written between 1910 and 1964, in the various genres that made the 20th century such a unique period in music history. We’ll play wonderful examples of neoclassical, eclectic, choral, ragtime, and jazz music from the composers Erik Satie, Cole Porter, May Aufderheide, William Henry Hewlett, Veljo Tormis, and ragtime, and jazz music from the composers Erik Satie, Cole Porter, May Aufderheide, William Henry Hewlett, Veljo Tormis, and Vincent Persichetti, all played in real time on an interesting variety of instruments.
