Greetings from the Director
Welcome to the Center for Public Musicology! Thank you for taking the time to visit us.
CPM provides an enjoyable and engaging series of music lectures and performances, often in association with Opera Naples, Gulfshore Opera, Big Arts (Sanibel), HD Met Broadcasts and retirement/assisted living communities. The goal of CPM is to better the community's understanding of music (i.e., classical, popular, and traditional music), to enhance the listening experience, and to facilitate lively discussions on music.
Everyone's experience and relationship with music is very personal. Consequently, CPM creates a small-group environment in which music can be taught, experienced, and discussed. To that end, CPM features numerous events where participants can enjoy learning about music in a fun and relaxed setting.
CPM lectures and performances can be tailored to meet specific needs of an organization or individual. Vocalists and instrumentalists of all types are available for any public or private event.
Join me for a free lecture at the Collier County Library, learn about the fascinating world of opera on a day-trip to the beautiful Sarasota Opera House, or explore with me the traditional music of Italy on a 14-day excursion to Salento, Italy or Kyoto, Japan. Explore the many events offered by CPM by clicking on the "Lectures" or "Excursions" link above.
I hope to see you at our next event!
