This course will explore musicians who overcame obstacles to succeed in their field. These obstacles include physical limitations, racial discrimination, and religious persecution. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the lives of inspirational musicians like Beethoven, Bedrich Smetana, Ralph Vaughn Williams, and Gabriel Faure, who composed musical masterpieces even after losing their hearing; Scott Joplin, William Grant Still, and Wynton Marsalis, who succeeded despite racial barriers of their time; and Ernest Bloch and numerous Jewish composers whose music was silenced with the rise of Nazism.
