Exciting new class on Israeli music

Are you mesmerized by the musical traditions of the State of Israel? If so, a new summer course, MUS 18b – Musical Evolution in the Land of Israel, may be just what you’re looking for this summer!

Whether you are a fan of Israeli folk music, Zohar Argov and Musiqa Mizrahit, Israeli Rock, or Hadag Nachash’s uniquely Israeli form of hip hop/rap, this exciting new class will offer students a rewarding opportunity to study the fascinating and richly diverse forms of music encountered in Israel. Throughout this 5-week course, students will be encouraged to read, listen and share their thoughts in a cozy, seminar atmosphere. In addition, several films will be shown and discussed in class.

This class is being offered by Gilad Harel and meets in the first Summer Session (May 31-July 1, 2011).  The course meets on Mondays, Tuesday and Thursdays from 8:30 AM – 11:00 AM.  Students can review a course syllabus for “MUS 18b – Musical Evolution in the Land of Israel” online.  To find out more about this course, and other Brandeis Summer School courses, visit the Summer School website.
