Speaker: Margaret Montet
Topic: Twentieth Century American Music- Part 1

Minimalist, Dodecaphonic, Electronic, and Aleatoric music, serious art music, experimental opera, Bop, and Free Jazz: The twentieth century saw a plethora of musical styles flourish and falter. Let’s look back on the previous century to follow these trends and genres into the 21st century. We’ll listen to and analyze music of American-born and émigré composers Aaron Copland, Milton Babbitt, Charles Ives, George Antheil and many others in the first part of this two part series. Bring an open mind and open ears! Part 2 will be presented in the Spring of 2021.

Margaret Montet returns after her popular presentation in 2019 on the Harlem Renaissance. Margaret has three Master’s degrees, Music Theory, Library Science, and Creative Writing. Currently she is a Librarian at Bucks County Community College.
