|Event:||SS-12 What's So Funny?|
|Time:||1:00 to 3:00|
|Presenter:||Howard Sprout, Baritone soloist, music historian|
|Really? Seriously? Did Johann Sebastian Bach have a sense of humor? What did Franz Joseph Haydn compose to bring a chuckle to Count Esterhazy? What characters were the brunt of Beethoven's cutting glee? And how did Brahms send up the faculty of a prestigious university? And who used a cricket's voice to demand higher wages and some time off? We will have some fun as we discover how "highbrow" composers take breaks from their serious endeavors for a bit of fun.|
