Bach’s Lunch Lecture: “Listening for Stories in Music”

Bach’s Lunch Lecture: “Listening for Stories in Music”

Melissa Mielens (c) Susan Wilson

Thursday, June 6, 12:10pm - Free and open to the public

Speaker: Melissa Mielens

Romantic, intense, playful, mysterious, brash, calming – music can evoke a thousand feelings and tell a thousand stories. Flutist Melissa Mielens will play short thematic pieces for solo flute, and discuss the ideas, moods, and stories behind them. When she presents “Winter Spirits” by Katherine Hoover, the listener may hear phrases that evoke a cold, lonely nighttime wind or a bird chirping…but it’s all a matter of perspective! Learn more about how musical tales are told in this imaginative listening session.
