Join CBC Radio host and producer, and Globe & Mail music critic, Robert Harris, for the fourth year of his informative and entertaining musical lectures. Originally inspired by Harris’ own 20-part conversations with Michael Enright on CBC Radio One’s popular The Sunday Edition, these presentations have grown to become a significant annual aspect of Stratford Summer Music’s programming. Each lecture, liberally sprinkled with musical examples illustrating key points, will demonstrate the impact that the titles and selected works have had upon music’s place in our lives.

Don Pasquale: A Comic Gem
It's easy to dismiss Gaetano Donizetti as a spinner of lush melodies and extravagant bel canto confections, but this nineteenth century opera composer was, and is, much more significant than that. From his harmonic originality to his invention of Chopin-like melody, Donizetti deserves far more attention than he gets. We'll look at him and his comic gem, Don Pasquale, before it’s presented this week at Revival House.
This event is wheelchair accessible.
Cost: $25/Per person (+$5 at the door)
Location: University of Waterloo | Stratford Campus, Stratford, 125 St. Patrick Street, Stratford
