Instruction will include using portable sound recorders, using the recording studio, and how to think about sound as a medium of expression.

MUSIC 11AX: An Operatic Play: Mozart's 7 Deadly Sins

This course is centered on the operatic repertoire of W.A. Mozart (1756-1791). Students of singing and acting will learn scenes from some of the world's most loved operas. Simultaneously they will develop their own play to be performed at the end of the course. This play will be linked to the Mozart operatic scenes studied, and the finished product will be a continuous narrative. Similarly, the instrumentalists will prepare an "overture" by Mozart appropriate to the enrolled ensemble (i.e. duo/trio/quartet etc.). They will then put their arrangement skills to the test as they adapt the music of the opera scenes to their particular ensemble.
