A Date with Classical Music with Jing-Yi Chung
Sep 18 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Classical music has been shown to improve people’s well-being by allowing stress relief, mood improvement, and many more. Come join us to learn more about classical music composers from different eras, from Bach, Mozart, to Chopin. We will be listening to their life stories and music, but most importantly, we will be exploring our own feelings inspired by the various classical pieces. Classical music is not a form of distant art, but a treasure that contains rich emotions and stories.
