Join us for a presentation by Dr. Marina Chiche on Nadia Boulanger and her connection to Longy.
Nadia Boulanger taught at Longy from 1938-1945, offering advanced courses in composition, harmony, and counterpoint, as well as lectures on Beethoven’s string quartets and Bach’s cantatas. While Nadia Boulanger may seem more traditional to our modern perceptions, she was a pioneer and innovator in her own time. Involved in early versions of the work Longy continues today, Boulanger aimed to invent new ways for musicians to embark on their educational journey. During this event, Dr. Chiche will explore Boulanger’s deep and lasting connection to Longy and our educational pursuits.
