In the Spirit of Unity: Continuity
Saturday, April 14, 2018, 4:30 pm
The Great Hall, St. John's University
QUOTE: “Music creates order out of chaos: for rhythm imposes unanimity upon the divergent, melody imposes continuity upon the disjointed, and harmony imposes compatibility upon the incongruous.”
Students will be preparing music that demonstrate continuity (an uninterrupted connection over a period of time) using conversations between instrumental sections in the ensemble, the director, and CMYO student soloists within an ensemble. Students will develop skills like leading with physical gestures, similar to a conductor, along with mental preparation and critical thinking on how musical lines are interconnected.
