Music of War, Protest and Revolution
Through the years, composers have drawn their musical inspiration from the events of their time. Music of war, protest, and revolution is charged with emotion. It is exciting, poignant, and timeless.
The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and Dayton Opera will take your students on exciting voyage of musical discovery, an experience that they will carry back into the classroom to enhance discussions and deepen their thinking.
This concert will focus on music written in response to social and historical events in four different centuries: a 16th century freedom movement, an 18th century job walkout, the War of 1812 and Napoleon, and the 20th century Civil Rights movement. All schools and home-schools attending receive accompanying Lesson Plans and slideshow. Curriculum Connections: English Language Arts, American History, Modern World History, Contemporary World Issues, Music, Art
Conductor: Neal Gittleman
