DESCRIPTION

The public program of the project “Did You Have a Good Time?” Vremena Goda Café since 1968 will include a series of lectures and talks about classical music.

In an informal setting, the course author and member of the Škola Crew ensemble Alexandra Stefanova will talk about academic music and explain why we all listen to it, but know so little about it. She will also explain how the orchestra works, how the piano and the pianoforte differ, why audience members should not applaud in the intervals between parts of the same work and much more.

The participants will have an opportunity to ask questions about anything they find difficult and will get simple and understandable answers.

"We did this course in order to change the conservative perception of academic music. We will create a perfect atmosphere to talk about classics: it will be effortless, informative, summer-like'', Alexandra explains.
