Renowned musician, conductor and educator David Banney invites art and music enthusiasts on a captivating journey through history, exploring the interconnectedness of visual art and music. Titled “Seeing Music, Hearing Art,” this enlightening talk delves into the symbiotic relationship between two of humanity’s most profound forms of expression. From the masterpieces of Leonardo da Vinci and Palestrina to the revolutionary works of Picasso and Stravinsky, Banney draws parallels between major historical movements spanning the last millennium.

Attendees will uncover the fascinating parallels between sound and visual imagery, pondering questions such as: How does one ‘hear’ perspective?
