CANCELED Pre-Concert Lecture with Destinee Siebe
This season, Lakeside Chautauqua is collaborating with the Conservatory of Music of Baldwin Wallace University to provide lectures prior to select Lakeside Symphony Orchestra concerts. These talks prepare listeners to more fully understand and enjoy the evening’s symphony concert. Join us at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 2 in the Fountain Inn Aigler Room for a Pre-Concert Lecture led by Destinee Siebe.
“The First World War through Classical Music”
The musical selections by George Butterworth, Sergei Prokofiev and Jean Sibelius featured on this evening’s Lakeside Symphony Orchestra concert were all composed within a decade of one another, surrounding the time period of World War I. Join presenter Destinee Siebe as she traces the musical ties to the Great War and other political events of the early 20th century, prompting a broader conversation on how art reflects and responds to the world of the artist.
