Austria and Czech Republic: The Birthplace of Western Music
Vienna is often called the "Capital of Classical Music." This one small area was the central location for many of the finest musicians of the 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. Many of the greatest musicians that history has ever known have called Vienna home. Classical music traditions still flourish and the Austrians take great pride in presenting programs "as they were." This course will study the worlds of these great composers by experiencing their art and culture first hand. Trips to the symphony, opera house, salons and theaters, as well as museums, homes, and gravesites will help participants to understand, contextualize, and humanize these great artists. Students will spend their time visiting significant sites in Austria and the Czech Republic.
