The Arianna Quartet joins forces with UMSL philosophy theorist and aesthetics scholar, Dr. Stephanie Ross, for an inspiring and entertaining look at the inner workings of how great compositions and live performance come together to create lasting masterpieces. What makes a musical masterpiece a masterpiece, or a movie, or book, or even a building, truly great? Why do we enjoy revisiting favorite works again and again? If we treat favorite works like cherished friends, what determines which new works we can come to love? Do we ever outgrow works we once admired? Don’t miss this opportunity to join the ASQ and philosopher Stephanie Ross at UMSL Grand Center for a thought provoking evening of performance and insight that is sure to change how you see and hear the world around you.
