Example: MUSI 3000 - The Offstage Career of Glenn Gould (History)

In this course, we will consider the off-stage career of Glenn Gould, one of the most recognizable—and controversial—classical music performers of the 20th century. Gould retired from the concert stage in 1964, still in his early thirties, and continued to impact the classical music world globally until his death in 1982. We will examine and discuss Gould’s work as a composer, recording artist, essayist, broadcaster, and more, in an effort to understand not only the depth of Gould’s contributions, but also his role as the first high-profile classical music performer to sustain his career as a performer long after leaving the concert stage.

Prerequisite TWO of: Music 3000, Music 3080, Music 3090, Music 3480, Music 3580

Minors

A minor is a good way to complement your major, have your interests in another subject area recognized on your official transcript, and expand your employment opportunities. It is an optional component of your degree program that requires a smaller number of courses to complete.
