The worlds of classical music and rock and roll are often seen in opposition to each other when in fact, composition, arrangement and performance techniques of both styles often influence the other. In this special Teachers Rock co-hosted by the College Orchestra Directors Association (CODA), Rock Hall educators Jason Hanley and Kathryn Metz will present class material from “Ambassador to the Orchestra: The Arranger in Rock and Roll.” The class will be followed by arrangements of songs by the Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel and others performed by by the Oxford Chamber Orchestra, The Mergers (Miami University) and Northern Kentucky University Ensemble.
Teachers Rock is free with a reservation. To attend, email firstname.lastname@example.org with TEACHERS ROCK in the subject line.
THIS EVENT WILL ALSO BE STREAMED HERE.
