Classical Music for the Masses AKA Musical Mondays

Do you enjoy music? How about classical music?

Musical Monday is your chance to sample some of the best-known, best-loved pieces of classical music. Starting in September, six bi-weekly evenings are planned to introduce classical music to the curious. Each segment will provide some information about the composer, and the circumstances of the music, but these are not lectures. The emphasis is on listening to music. There will be 3 to 6 selections each evening, all orchestral music, and mostly short pieces; half of them are 8 minutes or less. Over the course of the 12 weeks the schedule lists 27 different compositions by 25 different composers. After we finish the program each week, there should be ample time for some discussion.

Musical Monday: beginning September 11 at Sulzer Library, 6pm until 8. Other dates include Sept 25, Oct 2, 16 & 30 and Nov 6


Forward Chicago, an all-volunteer nonprofit organization, envisions our neighborhoods as model communities for people of all ages, where residents can age in place while remaining active, engaged and influential.
