Delmont library will host classical music appreciation course beginning this month
Live music can be powerful, and there are few better examples than a full orchestra launching into a well-composed piece of classical music.
Residents with an interest can learn more about classical music at a fall “mini-music-appreciation” course at the Delmont Public Library. “Classical Encounters,” presented by Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra Director Morrie Brand, is a four-class course designed to introduce people to the world of classical music or, for those somewhat familiar, serve as a refresher.
Classes will be help Sept. 12, 19, 26 and Oct. 3 at the library , located 77 Greensburg St., Delmont.
The course is limited to 15 students ages 16 and older. Advance registration is required by calling 724-468-5329. Registration is $10, or $3 per session.
Brand is a former college music professor and professional musician with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra. He served as the WSO’s managing director from 2000 to 2017.
