Wagner and His Music

With instructor Cleon Cornes.

The figure of Richard Wagner straddles the 19th century like a colossus. Composer, critic, polemicist, and poet, his abundant energy allowed him to pursue a vision with a single-mindedness beyond comprehension. The German counterpoint to Verdi, he revolutionized opera and had a major impact on music and art through his ideas and creations. His operas, rooted in the Gernmanic Romantic tradition, remain (like Verdi) a cornerstone of he modern repertoire. Along with Beethoven, Wagner was the most controversial composer of the 19th century, but, unlike Beethoven, he remains a subject of controversy even today.  We will review his life and music, focusing primarily on 11 of his major operas and music dramas.

The class runs 10 am Fridays, July 5, 12, 26, August 2, 30, and September 6.

Movement in Motion -- Introduction to Silat
Pak (instructor) Adam Kripke will introduce you to Silat Tuo, an ancient 1500 year old Indonesian martial art practiced for both its self-defense applications as well as its benefits to one's mind, body, and spirit.  Students are guided through a comprehensive system of full-body movement exercises in conjunction with specific breathing, and meditation methodology.  Benefits of the art include improved sensitivity, awareness, mindfulness, stress & anxiety reduction, balance, flexibility, fine motor skills, muscle tone, as well as rehabilitation and injury prevention. 
 
This is an introduction to the art focusing on the health and spiritual benefits and movements instead of the martial art applications.  "Meditation in Motion" is also beneficial for individuals with interests in Dance, Yoga, Aikido, Chi-Gung, Tai Chi, etc; however the movements are drawn from the martial art of Silat Tuo.  (All skill and ability levels are welcome, recommended age 10+).  Second Mondays of each month.
