Pianist/composer Roberto Pace will be giving ten free public lectures once again this summer, entitled “The Roots of the New Millenium.” This series offers insight into developments of classical music since 1900, as well as music in general. Featured composers to be discussed this summer are Debussy, Schönberg, Ives, Bartok, Messiaen, Stockhausen, Cage, Babbitt, and Berio.
Mr. Pace directed the music program of Fordham at Lincoln Center and lectured for the New York Philharmonic. He has achieved great success in the fields of concert, theater, and dance music, and has performed in Europe, Canada, Japan, and the US. Mr. Pace studied at the New England Conservatory with Pulitzer Prize winning composer Donald Martino, holds an M.F.A in composition from SUNY Purchase, and teaches theory and composition at the Settlement Music School of Philadelphia.
Fascinating and engaging for the musician and the lover of music alike, these lectures are always an eye-opening experience for all who attend. They are taking place this week starting July 8th and the next, starting July 15th Mon-Fri, 9-10 a.m. upstairs in the Lubec Congregational Christian Church. There is still time to get in on this exciting offering at SummerKeys, and all are heartily welcome!
