Concord Conservatory of Music Kicks off Concert Series How Do We Listen to Music?:  Harmony The Concord Conservatory of Music kicks off its concert season on today, September 23 at 7:00 pm with the first of a three-part Concert & Lecture Series.  The series of performances explores the different components that make up music and how they influence our listening and enjoyment.   When listening to a new piece of music, many people naturally gravitate towards the melody: is it singable? Is it catchy? However, for many composers—for example, Beethoven or Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Luther Adams—the role of melody is relegated to the background, and harmony becomes the primary tool for expression. CCM faculty will be joined by guest marimba player, Matt Sharrock, as they present the role of harmony in music with works for piano, organ, and marimba. Music will be performed by the composers J.S. Bach, Beethoven, Muhly, Mackey, and Adams.  Tickets are available at the door for $20 for adults, students under 18 years old for $5.  To buy tickets online go to http://concordconservatory.org/ and for more information, call 978-369-0010, or email info@ConcordConservatory.org.  The Concord Conservatory of Music is located in the West Concord Union Church at 1317 Main Street in Concord.
