2021 01 Colburn Community School Music Between World Wars 600x600 wlabel 1

Dr. Kristi Brown-Montesano will guide LA Opera Board members through an exploration of music from the interwar period (1919—1939), an era that witnessed an astonishing variety of aesthetic and stylistic developments in western Classical music.

Lectures will delve into the historical context and aesthetic ideals of individual works and related arts and will include discussion of Stravinsky’s Oedipus Rex (part of LA Opera’s 2021-2022 season).

This course is a 4-lecture reprise of Dr. Kristi Brown-Montesano’s popular Colburn Community School adult ed class, presented to assist the LA Opera Board’s evaluation of Zoom-hosted music history lectures for possible future programming in LAO’s community outreach schedule.
