What Makes It Italian? Discovering National Character in Music is a music listening and discussion group that meets at Casa Italiana and is open to everyone. The Fall 2019 edition begins Wednesday, October 16, 5:30-7pm.
Participation is free.
The group is led by Gina Crusco, who guides listening at Bard LLI and Riverdale Y, and who has been music instructor at The New School and director of Underworld Productions.
Recognizing that nothing moves us like live music, we are offering the option to attend and discuss concerts in New York City. If you would like to participate in one or both concerts, you will be responsible for the cost of your ticket. We hope to arrange for discounted group tickets.
