ARCHITECTURE AND MUSIC

From his Oscar-winning score for The Red Violin to his opera The Ghosts of Versailles, his acclaimed Symphony No. 3, Circus Maximus, and his Grammy-winning Conjurer: Concerto for Percussionist and String Orchestra, American composer John Corigliano has built one of the richest, most unusual, and most widely celebrated bodies of work of any composer in the last forty years. His “architectural” method of composing has allowed him to forge a strikingly wide range of musical materials into arches of compelling aural logic. This November, join us for a deep look into the mind and method of this internationally-renowned composer.

Following his talk, stay for a dress rehearsal for the November 19th concert that will feature performances of his music (including Fern Hill, The Red Violin: Chaconne for Violin and Orchestra, and Symphony No. 3: Circus Maximus) by the UBC Symphonic Wind Ensemble, UBC Choirs and UBC Symphony Orchestra.

Master Mind Master Class is an alumni UBC event series that offers an unprecedented look into the minds of modern thinkers making a unique impact on the world, and the lessons they’ve learned.
