Clas­si­cal mu­sic classes re­sume

West Sussex Gazette - - ARTS & ENTERTAINM­ENTS -

An­gela Zan­ders’ Chich­ester Mu­sic Cir­cle classes in mu­sic ap­pre­ci­a­tion be­gin again with a new course at the New Park Cen­tre in Chich­ester, start­ing on Mon­day, Jan­uary 21.

Im­ages in Mu­sic is the theme and each week An­gela will ex­plore some of the mu­sic in­spired by such im­ages as fire, weather, the moon and the sea. She will use Pow­erPoint slides and video ex­am­ples of the mu­sic, as well as demon­strat­ing at the pi­ano.

An­gela, who is a con­cert pi­anist and lec­turer at Chich­ester Univer­sity, has been run­ning mu­sic ap­pre­ci­a­tion classes for more than 25 years. She has a spe­cial in­ter­est in help­ing those who en­joy lis­ten­ing to clas­si­cal mu­sic but who have lit­tle knowl­edge of the sub­ject, to widen their un­der­stand­ing and en­joy­ment of it.

“I do be­lieve that clas­si­cal mu­sic is for ev­ery­one and there is al­ways so much won­der­ful mu­sic to dis­cover. It is so fas­ci­nat­ing try­ing to find out what as­pects of life in­spired com­posers to write great mu­sic and how they ex­pressed their in­spi­ra­tion in notes.” The classes are suit­able for those who have some knowl­edge of clas­si­cal mu­sic, but they are also aimed at those who en­joy lis­ten­ing to mu­sic but have no tech­ni­cal knowl­edge at all. There are eight ses­sions which take place on Mon­days 1.30pm3.30pm with a break for tea/ cof­fee.”

The cost of the course is £72. Con­tact An­gela on 07582 537123 or email: a.zan­[email protected] hot­mail.co.uk.
