HNRS 147.502 - Professor Jacob Grewe

Songs and Symphonies

This non-technical course will enhance your musical listening skills for both vocal and instrumental music of all eras. We listen to and study music of all genres, including music that you listen to already and music you will hear in formal recitals in UWEC's Gantner Hall and in great concert halls around the world. You’ll learn about expressive musical architecture (both vocal and instrumental), as well as the history and development of music in western civilization.
