NCS Summer Session 2020: A Musical Excursion!

June 16 - August 4, 2020

The North Coast Strings Orchestra has temporarily pivoted to an online format.  We are finding new ways to learn, enjoy, and share music with our learning community.  To kick off our Summer Session 2020 we are offering an online lecture/discussion series that will deepen our understanding of music and enhance our playing when we gather together in person once again. This special series is sure to shed some light on how music evolved, as well as how some of our own NCS repertoire fits into the overall musical picture.

A Musical Excursion
Have you ever wondered how the music notation we learn and read from every day actually developed? Or how the harmonies we play and hear advanced through the ages? Join us for a whirlwind, guided tour of Music: Antiquity through Today. Led by educator, musician, and award-winning conductor, Alyze Dreiling, this special NCS Summer Series is sure to shed some light on how music evolved, as well as how some of our own NCS repertoire fits into the overall musical picture. We will focus on fun listening assignments, thought-provoking analyses, and enlightening discussions--all designed to enhance our future of playing music together.
