Classical Era Winds From Europe to the American Colonies

A Free In-School Program

Offered During the Week of November 13, 2013

Students learn about the historic woodwinds

A wind ensemble including two clarinets, two horns, and bassoon will perform Harmoniemusik—secular music of the classical period that won popularity first in Europe and later in colonial America. This program is highly recommended for history classes as well as for music classes. Students will have the opportunity to learn how this type of music won favor internationally in a pre-electronic era. Performers will share their personal histories and experiences learning to maintain and perform on historic wind instruments. They will encourage young musicians and scholars, and provide insight into what it’s like to make a living in the music business.
