Lorraine Kneier will lead participants to experience several works of Beethoven. The presentation will include information about his life, discussion of each piece and guided music listening using graphs and written guides. The chosen music will include Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4, Symphony No. 5 and Piano Concerto No. 5, works to be performed by the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra in the 2020 Concert Series. Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 will be one of the works performed the next day at the May 29 CPO Rehearsal.
A lifelong interest in music has led Lorraine Kneier to many career roles: music teacher, administrator of music and fine arts education programs, choir director, adjudicator, and workshop leader.
