20th Century - Prokofiev and Prosecco

Genevieve's Theater Lounge

Peace Interludes are FREE music appreciation gatherings that unpack the rich traditions and diverse styles of great composers. Each month will feature a unique composer and drink pairing, providing a multi-sensory sip, listen, and learn experience that highlights a musical period.

Much like the divisions of the World Wars during the 20th century, the musical style also became divided—no single style dominated, providing an opportunity for a wide range of music composed during this time. Radio broadcasting, sound recording, and electric instruments, along with countries either beaten down by or feeling victorious from war, created a diverse environment for music to develop and transform. Join us for a “War and Peace” Interlude! 

Did you know?

Child prodigy Sergei Prokofiev was born in 1891 in a Ukrainian village that was ruled by Russia. Prolific and diverse in his composing, Prokofiev is considered a leading figure in Russian history and culture but was outshined by Joseph Stalin, dying on the same day as the infamous Soviet leader and communist.

Made from white grapes in Italy, prosecco has been around for hundreds of years and, unlike champagne, can grow stale with time. Drink up within three to seven years of its vintage for the best taste!

Hosted by Peace Center Artist-in-Residence Igor Begelman.
