Classical Mondays in Maclellan

Beginning Monday, Oct. 5, students, faculty, and staff enjoying their lunch in Dining Hall in Maclellan Hall on the main campus of King University will notice a small change in the atmosphere. Every Monday in October will be Classical Monday. Each Monday will have a different classical theme for your enjoyment.

“Following positive feedback received after using classical music during a couple of Launch events, we felt as though this would be a great way to expose students to this rich and exciting genre of music and have partnered with Dr. Pat Flannagan to do so,” says Matt Peltier, Ph.D., dean of Students at King University.

  • 5: Classical Jazz: Jazz is “America’s music.” Although thought to be free of other musical influences, much jazz takes its inspiration from the great classical composers.
  • 12: Piano Music of Impressionism: Impressionism is often called the first modern music and is loved by almost everyone. This music provides a preview to the Music Department Convocation on Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m. in Memorial Chapel.
  • 19: Music of the Movies: Movie soundtracks are the symphonies of the 21st century. Not only does the music enhance the movie but it also stands alone as great artistic music.
  • 26: Amadeus Day: The music of Mozart has been loved and admired for more 200 years. This musical prodigy has often been called the “perfect composer” and lives up to his name Amadeus = loved by God.

Join us during the month of October for Classical Mondays in Maclellan!
