National Arts Centre Orchestra: Beethoven Symphony No. 5

I was very pleased to have an English-French bilingual version of my Visual Listening Guide to Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 appear with the concert program book of the National Arts Centre Orchestra, when they performed the work with their Music Director Alexander Shelley on September 14 as part of the National Arts Centre’s Beethoven FOCUS Festival.

The Visual Listening Guide at the 2018 Verbier Festival

In July 2018, I was thrilled to be Musicologist-in-Residence at the Verbier Festival (July 19- August 2) in Switzerland, which was celebrating its 25th anniversary. While there, I discussed three of my Visual Listening Guides—including a new one commissioned by the Festival—at events including conversations with orchestra musicians and Festival goers, an interactive kids’ workshop, and public engagement activities such as the Les Gondoliers Project.
