This fun program will emphasize literacy through engagement with music. Learning will come alive through great classical music that tells stories, and teachers will study and discuss how to integrate musical communication with reading and writing creative activities. Listeners will discuss what composers are trying to express in pieces of music, and how spoken and written language are intertwined in communication and music. Pianist Diane Earle will perform from a 300-year span of music, experiencing how important communication is through the ages.
