A Presentation of Pentangle’s Dana Emmons Arts in Education Program
Alpin HongClassical for the iPod Generation
Thursday, January 17, 2013, 9:30 a.m.
Called “Classical for the iPod generation” by reviewers, critically-acclaimed and Juilliard-trained pianist Alpin Hong uses humor, musical virtuosity, and of-the-moment pop culture references to connect students of all ages to classical music and illustrate its ongoing vitality and relevance. Putting musical examples from Harry Potter, Spongebob, Star Wars, and Nintendo side by side with the likes of Beethoven, Mozart, and Brahms, Hong shows how popular movie, television, and video game music all connect to classical traditions. Using the theme of “Movies to Games, Classically Trained,” the energetic Hong invites students to see how today’s composers – like the composers of old – continue to use many of the same techniques of rhythm, harmony, and melody to create stories and elicit emotion.
