Frost Musicology Lecture Series Music, Art, and the Muses Behind Them

TICKET PURCHASE REQUIRED FOR ALL FROST MUSICOLOGY LECTURE SERIES EVENTS PURCHASE TICKETS AT FROSTMUSICLIVE.COM OR 305-284-2400

Each of these four weekly lectures with renowned musicologist and

Frost Research Professor Emeritus Frank Cooper will be held at the

Weeks Center for Recording and

Performance, Clarke Recital Hall. Tickets are available individually or as a four-ticket series.

Value of Muses

Thursday, October 5, 2017, 7:30 p.m. In this presentation, Professor Emeritus Cooper considers our debt to intuitive insight and enlightenment. We are fascinated by those who strive beyond the mundane and, through will and skill, achieve the extraordinary. We then evaluate them, rank them, and, sometimes, even canonize them as heroes and guiding lights.

The Future of Muses

Thursday, October 12, 2017, 7:30 p.m. This evening's lecture addresses the pursuit of ideas through hard work and persistence, opening the portal to epiphanies and flashes of illumination. The human subconscious then erupts into our awareness to solve problems or even create a masterpiece. The muses may respond to our needs— but only when and as they will.
