This past Thursday, February 11, 2016, soprano Michelle Fuchs and pianist Cheryl Berard, representatives of the Foundation for the Revival of Classical Culture, demonstrated the beauty of that creative play in Classical music to an assembly of students at the High School for Health Profession and Human Service. They performed for the students, "O Quante Volte", Giuliette's aria from Vincenzo Bellini's opera, "Die Forelle", or "the Trout", by Franz Schubert and "Deep River", a spiritual set by Harry T. Burleigh. Ms. Fuchs explained the meaning of each piece to the students and asked them to imagine and look for certain melodic themes in each composition.
After the performance, she invited the students to join the Foundation’s 5-week Summer Music-Science Program. She talked about Einstein and his violin and that Einstein insisted that “imagination is more important than knowledge, for knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
The summer Music-Science Program runs from July 18-August 19th of 2016. Students can experience within their own minds the lawful relationship between creations of man—Classical music—and creations of Nature—the Solar System, of which we are a part.
