The Sidney Pacific Committee on Scholarly Interactions and Music Committee jointly present Everybody Loves Classical Music…They Just Don’t Know It Yet!: An Interactive Lecture with Benjamin Zander, Conductor of the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra on Tuesday, October 30th, 2012 in the MIT Sidney Pacific Graduate Residence Multipurpose Room (70 Pacific Street, Cambridge) at 6:00pm (for refreshments), with the lecture taking place at 6:30pm. RSVP here. Maestro Zander is known the world over through his top rated TED talk (~3 million views) and as one of the best-known speakers on leadership. He gave the opening Keynote address at the World Economic Forum, and in 2002 he was awarded the “Caring Citizen of the Humanities” Award by the United Nations. In his talks, he is known for using music to help people open their minds and create joyful harmonies that bring out the best in themselves and their colleagues.
In addition, Maestro Zander says that coming to the preceding Boston Philharmonic Concert (on Sunday, October 28th, 2012 at Sanders Theatre) will significantly enrich your experience of the MIT Sidney Pacific lecture event. The concert is at 3:00pm, but at 1:45pm Maestro Zander will explain the pieces being performed at the concert as only he can.
