Road Scholar
Program #18580RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Explore and discuss a sampling of three of the greatest pianists of all time. Chopin and Liszt were famous performers as well as brilliant composers. Chopin's elegance and technique were remarkable, while Liszt’s virtuosity revolutionized how the piano is played. Investigate many of their impressive, enduring works for piano. Also examine the long and brilliant, if interrupted, career of Horowitz through his recorded legacy. Discover the unique qualities that made this virtuoso the most sought-after pianist of his day.


Highlights

• Meet with a professional pianist in a Conservatory studio one afternoon to investigate several ancestors of the piano. Hear the instruments played and compare and contrast their construction.”
• Join a Conservatory piano faculty member to deliberate the rigors of piano study on the conservatory level.
• Delight in performances by Peabody artists and exceptional students, and take advantage of free access to the world-class Walters Art Museum across the street from campus.
