“Classical Music is for YOU!”
A Weekly Music Appreciation Class with David Rhoderick

Starting Wednesday, January 9th at 10:30am, David Rhoderick will lead a weekly series of classical music classes at the West Tisbury Library. This is a beginner series devoted to the appreciation of classical music — no previous knowledge required, just a desire to listen and learn. Explore classical music in a “paddling pool” where we explain ideas and terms in plain English with plenty of listening. This series is presented by the Martha’s Vineyard Chamber Music Society and the West Tisbury Library. Free and open to the public.

Classes will meet winter Wednesdays from 10:30-11:45am starting January 9th.
