2019-2020 Composer Study

The past 4 years I have been following the rotation for composer and art mostly from the Ambleside Online website but feel strongly that giving my kids an opportunity to attend live music performances of our composer study is the best course to take in our planning!  For that reason, we will be studying Puccini in our Term 1 and attend the opera Madame Butterfly! Tchaikovsky's selections will give us several live performances including the Nutcracker in Term 2.  Term 3 will be Mozart and we hopefully will find a performance locally - or mommy will just play some Mozart repertoire on the piano! LOL!

At the end of this post I will give links for those of you near Nashville to also attend local performances!
