2019 Music-Science Summer Program
DATES: July 22nd-August 23rd
AGE REQUIREMENT: (ages 12 and above)
The 2019 Foundation summer program will focus on "the principle of discovery", and the unity between Classical music and science, in an intensive two-week course of study and experiment. No specific background in mathematics, geometry or music is required for this--only an inquiring mind.
Every student in the program is required to join the daily two-hour morning chorus, learning choral masterworks spanning four centuries with a focus on understanding polyphonic textures. The students will have the goal of performing in a concert at the end of the summer program. (Additional section work may be provided in the evenings for those students interested in improving singing skills, upon request.)
The afternoon program of science and music will encourage and equip the students to determine for themselves whether and how there exists apre-established harmony between the thought processes underlying what are popularly treated as separate: "science" and "art".
