History Notes

History Notes is a look back at moments in history as seen and interpreted by great composers, and reflected in their music. It tells the stories of great artists, the inspiration behind their great works, and sometimes their struggles against injustice. History Notes puts great musical works into the context of the times in which they were written and sheds light on the lives of their composers. It's for music lovers, history buffs, educators, and anyone who likes a good story. Join us on a tour through history from the Age of Enlightenment to the Cold War and beyond. History Notes is made possible by my team of friends Oakland Mills High School in Columbia, Maryland.

GREAT! Lots of good information. Its good to hear/see relevant connections of history and music to better understand the past as well as the ideas or ideals that birth such outstanding compositions as A. Copland's Fanfare For the Common Man.

Great job!

I went to my brother's concert at his high school last week. Both the band and orchestra played Copland pieces. Listening to this podcast first made the concert more interesting. Great job William on this podcast! Btw, he's my brother. Hurry up with the next one!!!
