Music Appreciation

What a thrill to have a deeper understanding and perception of the music you are listening to.

  • Beverly presents you with a broad perspective of the music and the times that greatly enhances your appreciation.

  • Together with Bev you will look at various eras, trace the lives and music of the composers, and learn about the socio-political influences on them. You will also look at trends in art, architecture, literature and science of the particular time.

  • You will experience and learn about the music through discussion, some analysis and listening.

  • You will feel the music come alive!

  • Presentations given for Sydney Symphony, Musica Viva Australia and private home salons.

“What a splendid evening. Beverly Katz is a great storyteller who seemed to combine so successfully history, joy, synergy with Haydn's music and just the right amount of humour with a beautiful and enticing presentation.

"We loved it and are looking forward to Mozart."

"Best wishes for all your determined and gracious endeavours."
