The Marshall University School of Music’s MUsic Mondays series will continue with the third lecture of the fall series at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 27, at Cellar Door, 905 3rd Ave., Huntington.
The event will explore the prelude as a piece of music and the various stylistic ideas it has taken on, according to a news release.
The lecture looks at selected works by composers from across 400 years, starting with Monteverdi in the 1500s and ending with Debussy in the early 1900s. Presenter Johan Botes, assistant professor of piano at Marshall University, said the prelude has had quite an interesting history as a musical work and deserves some research.
A $10 donation is requested at the door, with proceeds supporting the music program. Checks should be made payable to Marshall University. Marshall students receive free admission with a Marshall ID.
