Classical Music for People With Short Attention Spans, Friday, Feb. 16th
Classical Music for People With Short Attention Spans
Do you love classical music, but can’t sit through a whole 90-minute symphony from start to finish? This show is for you.
On Friday, February 16th, WTMD and Classical Revolution Baltimore are partnering to present Classical Music for People With Short Attention Spans. It’s the “Cliffs Notes” of classical music — all of the parts you know and love in a few minutes or less.
The arrangements vary, too, from more traditional classical ensembles to electric guitar and beatboxing. This show will be broadcast live on air, with a studio audience. Featured performers include Pique Collective, Outcalls and the Baltimore vocal artist Dominic Shodekeh Talifero.
Here are some of the pieces we’ll be presenting:
Mozart, Lacrimosa (from Requiem) Beethoven, Symphony No. 7 Mvt. 2 (from King’s Speech and Mr. Holland’s Opus to name a few) Verdi, Drinking Song (from Skittle’s Singing Rabbit commercial) Strauss, Also Sprach Zarathustra (from 2001: A Space Odyssey) …and many more!
