Russian classical music developed in a manner quite different than in the west. In fact, there was no indigenous Russian art music until the 19th century. However, once composers such as Glinka, Mussorgsky, Borodin and Tchaikovsky emerged and a conservatory or two were built, a fascinating national style was created. It is impossible to imagine the modern concert hall or CD collection without the extraordinary works of these amazing musicians. We can't promise caviar but there will be great music! Facilitator: Jonathan Palevsky, B.M., M.M., is Program Director of WBJC FM, Classical Music Station. His undergraduate studies focused on Musicology and his graduate studies on classical guitar performance. He is a radio show host and a lecturer and also hosts Cinema Sundays at The Charles Theater. Registration: Reservations may be made via email to or by phone to Sherri Bell, SPICE Chair at 410-833-2409.
