The spring Music 101 lecture series features a six-week exploration of British culture during the 18th century. Peter Hoyt, the CMA Adjunct Curator for Music, presents a panoramic survey of this tumultuous period in England and its colonies. In addition to listening to compositions, participants examine architects, artists and the English tradition of comic engravings as exemplified by William Hogarth and his successors. A frequent guest speaker and program annotator for New York’s Lincoln Center, Dr. Hoyt is a historian specializing in the relationship between 18th-century music and its sister disciplines. He is currently the President of the Mozart Society of America.
