Fall 2016 Courses Registration Opens: June 11, 2016 at 10:00 AM ITALIAN WITH LUCIANA BENZI $40.00 Monday: 10:00 am to 12:00 noon-September 12-November 21 Room -108 – St. James Campus No class October 10 for Thanksgiving – course extended one week Our Italian studies continue for those who have good basic knowledge of the language and wish to “brush up” on their skills. Basic grammatical aspects and vocabulary will be reviewed before the introduction of all new material. Classes will give priority to language practice with particular attention to pronunciation. Some homework may be required. New students with some ability in Italian are welcome. From 1962 to 1976 Luciana Benzi taught the Italian language at the University of Toronto in the Department of Italian Studies, the School of Continuing Studies and the Faculty of Music. During these teaching years she wrote many articles on topics of the Italian language and literature and gave papers at symposia and talks on Italian culture at various institutions. She received a grant from the Italian government to research and prepare material for a textbook written by her on the principles of Italian phonetics for first year students ANDREW’S FAVOURITES: BOOKS TO FILM WITH ANDREW CLOSE $45.00 Monday: 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm - September 12-November 21 Room 418A St. James Campus No class October 10 for Thanksgiving – course extended one week This course continues an earlier series looking at films produced from novels and other literature. This format has been evident throughout Film History, but now more film-producing countries are turning to it. These communities also use less well-known publications and authors. Established novels are still being adapted, as there will always be a desire to see new interpretations, but today there seem to be fewer than in previous decades of filmmaking. This is especially true of Hollywood, the largest producer of Books to Film. The trend seems to be the adaptation of any book, well-known or not, and these film communities are producing some of the best adaptations ever. We will continue to look at aspects of story telling, differences of style and technique, and underlying ideologies. Some of the films to be viewed will include: The Lovely Bones, Everything is Illuminated, The Woodsman’s Bride, Sambo, Blindness, and Snow Falling on Cedars. A full list of the films will be given out on the first day of the course. Andrew Close is returning to present his ongoing series. He has been with George Brown College since 2002. He has taught in several different disciplines throughout the College, one of which has been the Film Studies course. He has brought the world of film and how to view it through the study of film to many students. In the area of film, his interests lie in independent filmmaking, foreign filmmaking and the world of remakes. LANGSTON HUGHES AND THE HARLEM RENAISSANCE WITH CHRISTIAN WHITALL $40.00 Monday, 2:00-4:00 pm September 12-November 21 Room -108 St. James Campus No class October 10 for Thanksgiving -- course extended one week The flowering of African American culture, called the first Jazz Age (1918-1935), was not confined to music. The appalling disadvantages faced by black people in pre-civil rights America caused them to fall back on their creative resources to express their struggles and sorrows, joys and victories in music, visual art, and literature. In the early 20th century, however, creativity burst out of black culture to influence and change American culture as a whole, and eventually black culture worldwide. The reverberations of this movement can still be felt today, yet the early artists and thinkers, and the world they emerged from, have been largely forgotten. In this course, we will address this imbalance. We will do so largely through the poetry, especially that of the Renaissance’s leading artist, Langston Hughes, amazing, prolific and now largely unknown. Hughes led an extraordinary life, travelling widely. He corresponded with all the major Harlem artists, as well as Martin Luther King Jr., whose epoch-making speeches were directly influenced by Hughes’ poetry. But behind all this was a driven man, compelled by inner forces to pursue his literary vocation against incredible odds, and whose sense of injustice never kept him from revelling in the delights of this world and laughing at its absurdities. Christian Whittall has been developing unique methods of helping people integrate creative self expression into everyday lives. Aside from his long-running series of creative writing classes at George Brown, he has taught at ‘This Ain’t the Rosedale Library,’ ‘The Foundation for Social Economics’ and ‘The Writing Center’ in San Francisco. HISTORY OF THE THEATRE WITH BRIAN KENNINGTON $40.00 Tuesday, 10:00am-12 noon September 13-November 15 Room 418A St. James Campus We are going to plunge into the history of theatre and acting, with an emphasis on class participation. Acting techniques, including the Stanislavski method, will be studied and demonstrated. Scenes from classic and contemporary plays will be analyzed and worked on within the class. There will also be a workshop of an original play written by the instructor, Brian Kennington. This is a class for students who want to be involved. Brian Kennington has performed and directed in theatres across Canada for the past 40 years. A graduate of the Ryerson Theatre Program, he has taught in schools and community centres throughout Toronto. Brian is also a playwright, and his plays have been produced for the professional stage, two of them receiving Patron’s Picks at the Toronto Fringe Theatre Festival in 2013 and 2014. COSTUMES AND CHARISMA: ICONS IN HISTORY WITH JAMES THOMPSON $40.00 Thursday, 10:00 a.m.-12 noon September 15-November 17 Room 418A St. James Campus There have always been outstanding leaders and stylish individuals; we call them “icons”. They each contributed to fashion while building their own cult status, many achieving a mass “following” through their use of fashion adornments. Students will also learn about how our “icons” used charisma effectively, whether it be King Tut, Cleopatra, Caesar Augustus, England’s Queen Elizabeth I, Frances’s Louis XIV, Beau Brummel, Oscar Wilde, the Kennedys or James Dean. More recently Marilyn Monroe and Princess Diana became successful media icons. Each week George Brown Seniors will encounter different icons, the most stylish and charismatic men and women of all time. We will also discover that, despite advances in media and technology, chic and elegance cannot easily be created. The icons we will examine are unique to their Age, whether in the distant past or in our own time. James A.S. Thompson is an Ontario Ministry of Education certified teacher with a Masters in History, a diploma in Art History from the Courtauld Institute, London, and a Masters in Museums Studies. He has been teaching later life learners for eight years. He is an experienced contributor to the continuing learning aspect of education. He has taught extensively on politics, history and culture in Europe and Asia and is committed to teaching courses that involve experiences and opinions of later life learners. HISTORY OF THE BEATLES WITH MIKE DALEY,PHD $45.00 Friday: 10:00 am-12:00 noon -September 16-November 18 Room 418A St. James Campus This course will track the musical development of the Beatles, starting from the earliest days in Liverpool and Hamburg, moving through the excitement of Beatlemania, the rush of psychedelia, and the maturity of Abbey Road. While the focus will be on the music, we will also consider how recording techniques, the music business, the music of other artists and the culture of the 1960’s affected John, Paul, George and Ringo as they created the Beatles repertory. Mike Daley holds a PhD. in music from York University and has taught at Guelph, McMaster, Waterloo, and York Universities, as well as leading later-life courses at Glendon, Innis, and George Brown College. Mike has published scholarly articles on American popular music in international journals and has been a speaker at academic conferences from Normandy to Nashville. As a music producer at CBC Radio, Mike wrote scripts for Tom Allen, Eric Friesen and Shelley Solmes and programmed music for nationally broadcast radio shows. Mike has also toured the U.S. and Canada as a musician with Jeff Healey, the Travellers and others, and has appeared on dozens of recordings as a guitarist and singer. GREAT TREASURES XLVIII GREAT COMPOSERS WITH RICK PHILLIPS $55.00 Wednesday 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM September 14, 2016 to November 16,2016 Room 128 St. James Campus September 14 Welcome: introduction, background and set-up How, why and where did classical music begin? In this first session, the origins and early evolution of classical music will be covered, taking us through the Medieval and Renaissance periods and setting the stage for the entire course. September 21 G. F. Handel, 1685-1759 German-born and Italian-trained, Handel spent the majority of his career in England. Through his operas, oratorios and instrumental music, Handel became one of the most popular composers of the High Baroque era in music, capturing the majesty and grandeur of the English court. September 28 J. S. Bach, 1685-1750 Although J. S. Bach came from a long line of musicians, he excelled his ancestors and most of his contemporaries in all aspects of musical endeavour. There are few composers who have shown the craft and skill of Bach, and yet his music fell into obscurity after his death in 1750. Thankfully, it is properly recognized today and Bach is often rightfully considered the musician's musician. October 5 W. A. Mozart, 1756-1791 A gifted child prodigy, Mozart died at the tender age of 35, but not before leaving the world with a lasting legacy of his musical genius. Opera, choral music, symphonies, chamber music, sonatas, concertos – there are few fields of music left untouched and enhanced by Salzburg's favourite son. October 12 Ludwig van Beethoven, 1770-1827 One of the most influential musicians in history, Beethoven was a child of the French Revolution and, in many ways, opened the door to the 19th century Romantic Age of music. Although he was deaf for the last decade of his life, Beethoven enhanced the possibilities and scope of music forever. October 19 Frederic Chopin, 1810-1849 Although Polish-born, Chopin spent the bulk of his career in Paris. He was one of the greatest pianists in history, and composed virtually nothing but music for his instrument. Chopin's poetic imagination, creativity and emotion beautifully captured the early Romantic period and his piano music is among the most popular ever composed. October 26 Richard Wagner, 1813-1883 Controversial during his lifetime, Richard Wagner continues to be either loved or hated today. Composing virtually nothing but opera, Wagner was a remarkable musical innovator who believed in the unification of the arts, taking operatic form, content and impact to its culmination. November 2 Peter I. Tchaikovsky, 1840-1893 Neurotic, insecure, highly emotional and hyper-sensitive, Tchaikovsky remains one of the most popular composers with music that is thoroughly Russian in character. There are few today who don't know and love his ballets The Nutcracker or Swan Lake, but the symphonies, concertos and chamber music continue to grow in popularity. November 9 Claude Debussy, 1862-1918 Claude Debussy was one of the leaders of musical Impressionism – a French reaction against 19th century German Romanticism that stressed mood and atmosphere, creating music of refinement, subtlety, delicacy and clarity. His music heralds in the rich musical age of the 20th century. November 16 Igor Stravinsky, 1882-1971 Sometimes viewed as the musical counterpart of the painter Pablo Picasso, Stravinsky altered, developed and expanded the concept of music and previously-held notions of it. He was experimental in his approach, adventurous, imaginative, inventive and versatile and one of the greatest musical orchestrators. Lecturer: Rick Phillips, B.Mus., M.Mus. How and why has the great classical music of the past survived? What is it that continues to communicate to us today? Classical music writer, speaker and broadcaster, Rick Phillips will walk us through music of the great composers, ranging from the Renaissance and Baroque eras, through the 18th century Classical period, 19th century Romanticism into the 20th century. You'll learn about the composers' lives, loves and careers, some of the socio-political history of their time and how it influenced them and their music. You'll discover some of the basics of musical form and structure, and begin to develop a critical ear for music. And, of course, you'll hear lots of great music from legendary recordings, acquiring new insights into how and what to listen for, and why this music continues to be loved today.
