From Mozart to Madonna: Reinventing the Self through Music and Culture: Are you interested in a learning community that will both provide a challenging academic environment while giving you the support to succeed? Combining the topics of music with English, we will prepare you for the rigors of critical thinking required at a four-year university with engaging inquiry. For example, what do Mozart and Madonna have in common? The 18th century boy-wonder and the expressive material girl both managed to reach a wide array of audiences simply by rethinking and re-imagining their art to adjust to the new social climates. In this learning community, we will focus on the art of reinvention through music, culture, and art.
