Unlock Classical Music with Herb Smith, RPO Guest Conductor and 3rd Trumpet

April 20, 2021 at 12:00 PM

Popular music changes with the times. Once, Beethoven, Verdi, Mozart, Stravinsky, and other classical composers created the popular music of the day. Not so much now. However, the same skills we use to listen to today's pop music can be carried over into classical music of yesteryear. Join Herb Smith, guest conductor and 3rd trumpet of RPO, as he helps you interpret and unlock the language of classical music. This program is part of a series highlighting participants of In This Moment: Revolution Reckoning Reparation, a project for ten teams of Black writers and photographers to profile ten Black leaders from across the city of Rochester published by Visual Studies Workshop. The project demonstrates the breadth and scope of revolutionary work happening in the area. This library event is co-sponsored by the Monroe County Library System and the Rochester Public Library. This event is offered on Zoom. Please register.
