Appreciate the Greats as You Should with This Free Performance of Chopin

Do you enjoy relaxing to the sound of music? Peace Interludes are FREE music appreciation gatherings that unpack the rich traditions and diverse styles of great composers. Each month features a unique composer and drink pairing, providing a multi-sensory sip, listen, and learn experience that highlights a musical period. This month, Peace Interludes presents “Romantic: Chopin and Champagne.”

Made exclusively in the Champagne region of France, champagne was originally created by a monk in the 17th century. Researchers have found that there are approximately one million bubbles in the average champagne glass. Be whisked away to Paris, the city of lights and love, as you explore the Romantic period.

Born in 1810, Polish composer Frédéric Chopin only gave 30 public performances of his preludes, nocturnes, and waltzes. Working during the Industrial Revolution, artists began to turn inward, focusing on reflective forms, while others used self-portraits or autobiographies.

Hector Berlioz’s symphonic score, Symphonie Fantastique, and Caspar David Freidrich’s painting, Wanderer above the Sea of Fog, are exemplary Romantic works that transport us into the artists’ aesthetic and emotional imaginations. We encourage you to attend this free event with your friends on February 28! No “classical” rules apply at this Peace Interlude!
