Eastern Influences in Western Music with Diane Mitchell

Humans have always been drawn to the "exotic other," across the river or on the other side of the globe.  Where armies and explorers went, musicians and other artists is also went, and those who made it back to the West often brought wondrous stories and songs home with them. 

Since ancient times, the West has been "borrowing" Eastern musical ideas.  These musical "Exotic Accents" are familiar to many from Mozart's Rondo all Turk and Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade.  the 6-week course will follow these musical journeys from Moorish Spain, through Turkey, Austria, Hungary, France, England, China, Japan, Indonesia, and the Americas, with musical examples ranging from Telemann to Ellington, from Schubert to Brubeck.  Each class will be supplemented by audio and video examples, and by suggestions for further exploration.

Join Diane Mitchell as she takes us on a journey following the music from the East to the West. She has presented lectures on opera and music for people 50 years and over for the past seven years through the OSHER Life Long Learning Institute of UCR's Extension Office.

 Sponsored by the Friends of the Idyllwild Library.

 Deep inside every child is an artist waiting to burst forth. Helping them learn to express themselves through art is the most positive way to express feelings about the world inside themselves and in their environment without hurting another individual. The children learn the correct way to use art utensils (scissors, tape, slide paper cutter) that have been enhanced with other materials (crayons, pen, pencil, etc.). They also learn that everything they produce has value, which in turn helps them to understand their own value.

For at least 2,500 years before the 1860's, the only human presence in the San Jacinto Mountains was provided by Cahuilla (and possibly Luiseno) Indians from the surrounding valleys and foothills. San Jacinto and Tahquitz peaks hold a central place in Cahuilla mythology. Pictographs on boulders, and bedrock mortars near oak groves and creeks, still testify to their former presence.

Gerald Clarke Jr. is a member of the Cahuilla Band of Indians. He currently lives on his family's ranch on the  reservation, and also serves on the tribal council.  He is also the Visual Arts Dept. Chair at Idyllwild Arts.Please join us for this very informative presentation.

Eastern Influences in Western Music with Diane Mitchell

Humans have always been drawn to the "exotic other," across the river or on the other side of the globe.  Where armies and explorers went, musicians and other artists is also went, and those who made it back to the West often brought wondrous stories and songs home with them. 

Since ancient times, the West has been "borrowing" Eastern musical ideas.  These musical "Exotic Accents" are familiar to many from Mozart's Rondo all Turk and Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade.  the 6-week course will follow these musical journeys from Moorish Spain, through Turkey, Austria, Hungary, France, England, China, Japan, Indonesia, and the Americas, with musical examples ranging from Telemann to Ellington, from Schubert to Brubeck.  Each class will be supplemented by audio and video examples, and by suggestions for further exploration.

Join Diane Mitchell as she takes us on a journey following the music from the East to the West. She has presented lectures on opera and music for people 50 years and over for the past seven years through the OSHER Life Long Learning Institute of UCR's Extension Office.

Eastern Influences in Western Music with Diane Mitchell

Humans have always been drawn to the "exotic other," across the river or on the other side of the globe.  Where armies and explorers went, musicians and other artists is also went, and those who made it back to the West often brought wondrous stories and songs home with them. 

Since ancient times, the West has been "borrowing" Eastern musical ideas.  These musical "Exotic Accents" are familiar to many from Mozart's Rondo all Turk and Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade.  the 6-week course will follow these musical journeys from Moorish Spain, through Turkey, Austria, Hungary, France, England, China, Japan, Indonesia, and the Americas, with musical examples ranging from Telemann to Ellington, from Schubert to Brubeck.  Each class will be supplemented by audio and video examples, and by suggestions for further exploration.

Join Diane Mitchell as she takes us on a journey following the music from the East to the West. She has presented lectures on opera and music for people 50 years and over for the past seven years through the OSHER Life Long Learning Institute of UCR's Extension Office.

The children learn the correct way to use art utensils (scissors, tape, slide paper cutter) that have been enhanced with other materials (crayons, pen, pencil, etc.). They also learn that everything they produce has value, which in turn helps them to understand their own value.

Eastern Influences in Western Music with Diane Mitchell

Humans have always been drawn to the "exotic other," across the river or on the other side of the globe.  Where armies and explorers went, musicians and other artists is also went, and those who made it back to the West often brought wondrous stories and songs home with them. 

Since ancient times, the West has been "borrowing" Eastern musical ideas.  These musical "Exotic Accents" are familiar to many from Mozart's Rondo all Turk and Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade.  the 6-week course will follow these musical journeys from Moorish Spain, through Turkey, Austria, Hungary, France, England, China, Japan, Indonesia, and the Americas, with musical examples ranging from Telemann to Ellington, from Schubert to Brubeck.  Each class will be supplemented by audio and video examples, and by suggestions for further exploration.

Join Diane Mitchell as she takes us on a journey following the music from the East to the West. She has presented lectures on opera and music for people 50 years and over for the past seven years through the OSHER Life Long Learning Institute of UCR's Extension Office.

 Sponsored by the Friends of the Idyllwild Library.

 Deep inside every child is an artist waiting to burst forth. Helping them learn to express themselves through art is the most positive way to express feelings about the world inside themselves and in their environment without hurting another individual. The children learn the correct way to use art utensils (scissors, tape, slide paper cutter) that have been enhanced with other materials (crayons, pen, pencil, etc.). They also learn that everything they produce has value, which in turn helps them to understand their own value.

Eastern Influences in Western Music with Diane Mitchell

Humans have always been drawn to the "exotic other," across the river or on the other side of the globe.  Where armies and explorers went, musicians and other artists is also went, and those who made it back to the West often brought wondrous stories and songs home with them. 

Since ancient times, the West has been "borrowing" Eastern musical ideas.  These musical "Exotic Accents" are familiar to many from Mozart's Rondo all Turk and Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade.  the 6-week course will follow these musical journeys from Moorish Spain, through Turkey, Austria, Hungary, France, England, China, Japan, Indonesia, and the Americas, with musical examples ranging from Telemann to Ellington, from Schubert to Brubeck.  Each class will be supplemented by audio and video examples, and by suggestions for further exploration.

Join Diane Mitchell as she takes us on a journey following the music from the East to the West. She has presented lectures on opera and music for people 50 years and over for the past seven years through the OSHER Life Long Learning Institute of UCR's Extension Office.

 Sponsored by the Friends of the Idyllwild Library.

Eastern Influences in Western Music with Diane Mitchell

Humans have always been drawn to the "exotic other," across the river or on the other side of the globe.  Where armies and explorers went, musicians and other artists is also went, and those who made it back to the West often brought wondrous stories and songs home with them. 

Since ancient times, the West has been "borrowing" Eastern musical ideas.  These musical "Exotic Accents" are familiar to many from Mozart's Rondo all Turk and Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade.  the 6-week course will follow these musical journeys from Moorish Spain, through Turkey, Austria, Hungary, France, England, China, Japan, Indonesia, and the Americas, with musical examples ranging from Telemann to Ellington, from Schubert to Brubeck.  Each class will be supplemented by audio and video examples, and by suggestions for further exploration.

Join Diane Mitchell as she takes us on a journey following the music from the East to the West. She has presented lectures on opera and music for people 50 years and over for the past seven years through the OSHER Life Long Learning Institute of UCR's Extension Office.

"A wounded warrior and his younger brother discover the true meaning of Christmas in this timeless story of family bonds. "As far as ten-year-old Miller McClellan is concerned, it's the worst Christmas ever. His father's shrimp boat is docked, his mother is working two jobs, and with finances strained, Miller is told they can't afford the dog he desperately wants. "Your brother's return from war is our family's gift," his parents tell him. But when Taylor returns with PTSD, family strains darken the holidays. Then Taylor's service dog arrives-a large black Labrador/Great Dane named Thor. His brother even got the dog! When Miller goes out on Christmas Eve with his father's axe, determined to get his family the tree they can't afford, he takes the dog for company-but accidentally winds up lost in the wild forest. The splintered family must come together to rediscover their strengths, family bond, and the true meaning of Christmas." ~ Amazon   All are welcome to the Library's book club.
