    As an artistic movement, Impressionism began with an art exhibition of the French painters Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet, and Camille Pissarro in the 1870s, in which their plein air paintings captured their "impressions" of nature, gardens and daily life, with their changing light, color and atmosphere. The discussion will briefly trace the roots of Impressionism with the original, captivating and colorful art work of Renoir and examine the breathtaking work of the great painter Claude Monet in its various stages.

    In literature, the movement of symbolism was born at the same time, represented by such French writers as Stephane Mallarme, Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine. Their work transformed poetry and prose dramatically and an evocative movement was born that would transform the sister art of music later in the 19th century.

    Musically, from 1887 on, the great French composer Claude Debussy created new, shimmering compositions that favored modality with imaginative orchestration, irregular rhythms and spontaneity that created atmosphere using a new tonal color palette. His novel  musical style spawned the work of fellow composer, Maurice Ravel, who expanded the aesthetic in his own voice. Special attention will be directed to the collaborative efforts of Debussy and Ravel with writers and painters of their day, and illuminate the means by which all the art forms were interconnected and synergized. 

    The second part of the presentation will feature a live performance of Impressionist period music written for solo flute and twentieth century contemporary works for flute influenced by this evocative school. Through viewing art prints and listening to live flute performance of such works as Debussy’s “Syrinx,”  Honegger’s “Danse de la Chevre,” “Piece” by Ibert and two impressionistic compositions by composer Caryn Block, a portrait of impressionism in art and music will be painted for the audience.

    When most people think of Leonard Bernstein, they think of West Side Story.  Bernstein was a composer, but in addition to composing for Broadway, he also wrote symphonies, ballet scores, film soundtracks, chamber pieces, choral music and religious works.  He was a conductor and the music director of the New York Philharmonic, the first American to ever lead a major American orchestra.  He was a concert pianist, lecturer and educator.  Personally, Bernstein was charismatic, articulate and a natural communicator.  Most significant, however, is how he combined all these talents to become an advocate for great music and in so doing, raise the profile of American music on the world stage.  American music and American musicians owe him a great debt.  Bernstein's recent 100th birthday gives us the ideal opportunity to revisit and celebrate his accomplishments.  

    For over 30 years Kenneth Korn has been a music teacher in the Paramus, NJ public schools.  He has a diverse, broad knowledge of music and music education, because during his long career he had opportunity to teach all areas of the music curriculum.   He directed band, orchestra and vocal music to children from Kindergarten through high school. He is a graduate of the Crane School of Music and has a Master's degree in music education.
