What Makes Music Special? Part 2: Music and Context

Wednesday, March 17, 2021 at 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Free for Students and Teachers

What makes your favorite music “special”? Is it the music itself? The memory of when you first heard it? The context in which you hear it? How do our personal backgrounds affect how we hear music? How can music help us relate to others? This unique program, filled with “special” music from Cambodia, Taiwan, Colombia, and India, explores musical and non-musical elements that make music impactful.
This event is part of a weekly series of online music programs for K-12 students and teachers with the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra, International Music Foundation, and Crossing Borders Music, hosted by StreamableLearning.com. The events are free and open to K-12 students and teachers. Advanced registration is required. This particular event is geared towards grades 6-12.
Every weekly virtual concert in the series can be viewed at https://www.streamablelearning.com/app/events/performing-arts/. The site also includes registration instructions, or you may register by e-mailing info@crossingbordersmusic.org from your school e-mail address by 9AM Central the day of the event with the subject line “Registration.”
