Moved by Music
Inspired by works of Bach, Handel, Beethoven, Ravel, and Bartok, advanced student musicians explore the way sound may be illuminated by the motions of the body in a new Princeton Atelier performance. Led by Princeton professor and composer Barbara White and New York City choreographer Kate Weare, Princeton Atelier students present new work that promises to stand classical music performance on its head!
ATL 496 / MUS 496
Movement for Musicians
This Atelier is for experienced musicians seeking to integrate movement into musical performance and/or learn techniques of professional preparation for a field of contemporary performance that increasingly involves movement or action onstage. Students will prepare musical selections from their repertoire, as well as learning new pieces, and be responsible, in collaboration with their classmates, for experimenting with music and movement; for preparing movement along with music; and for performing and critiquing their classmates contributions. The course will be highly experiential, interactive and collaborative, including intensive rehearsal time preparing for a public performance at the end of the semester.
