EUREKA – Eureka College associate professor of music Pam Bates will present “How Does Your Harmony Function?” at 4 PM, March 7, in the Cerf Center at Eureka College. A reception will follow.
The free, public presentation will examine the principles of harmonic function that were established during the late 18th century and that are the roots of modern-day concert music, jazz and much popular music.
Selections by Johann Christian Bach and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart will be performed, and similarities between the two works will be discussed.
“It is interesting that many musical ideas have been generously shared between these two composers,” Bates said.
Bates has taught courses in music theory and applied piano at Eureka College for 17 years. She is the convocation pianist for college events and the accompanist for the college Chorale and student recitals. She received bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Bradley University.
The presentation is the fourth and final Clarence R. Noe Dean’s Lecture by Eureka College faculty members this academic year.
