Classical and popular music are often seen as opposing one another-classical appealing to the “high brows” and popular to-the others. Yet great composers have always borrowed, or stolen, directly from popular music for many reasons. This class takes a look at some of the ways composers have used popular music over the centuries. From full-blown concerts, with and without accompanying musicians, to tightly focused presentations that combine musical performances with informative descriptions of the composition and the times when the music was created, to more intimate presentations for smaller interest groups.
