"The Road to Success"
The Road to Success shares the personal qualities and the experiences of the great classical composers. It was their personal attributes that allowed them to write such extra-ordinary music. These individuals were ordinary people like you and me. They simply found something they loved to do and worked very hard to become the best. And never gave up, even when faced with great adversity; not even the loss of sight, hearing or members of their bodies kept them from their work. Now, many years after their passing, their music is still enjoyed throughout the world. The music and lives of Beethoven, Schubert, Faure, and other famous composers are discussed in the course of this program.

Stories in Song focuses on the ways music presents stories. Familiar as well as unfamiliar stories, including Romeo and Juliet, and the Trout, are included in this program. This presentation is best for students who have been exposed to classical music.
A Journey Through Time
