MUS 103 - Music in Context

4 credits
This course is designed to introduce students to music in its social and cultural contexts from the seventeenth century to the present. We will pay special attention to developing a basic music vocabulary and improving students’ listening skills, while acquiring familiarity with a core repertory by composers from Henry Purcell to Julia Wolfe.  Attendance at a live concert performance of music is required. Two short papers will explore connections between music and other disciplines, and the experience of music live in concert. No prior musical knowledge is necessary. This course is intended for non-majors and prospective music majors/minors, and is the prerequisite for upper-level courses in Western music history and culture. Enrollment priority: Given to music majors and minors. Offered every semester. CLA-Breadth/Arts, CLA-Breadth/Humanities
