Music of the 19th Century & Symphonic Music: Germany, the Czech Republic,

Music of the 19th Century &
Symphonic Music:
Germany, the Czech Republic,
Hungary & Austria
Summer 2017, May 29 – June 19
Participants will study the music of the 19th Century (romantic period/1825 to 1900) or Symphonic
Music, depending on your registration. Societal trends of the times and how they affected the arts will
be discussed in detail. Study of this will be enhanced through visits to museums, concert halls,
cathedrals, other historic venues and attendance of live concerts in the culturally rich cities in which we
will stay.
Professor Patrick Miles, Director of Orchestral Activities and Professor of Horn at UW-Stevens Point will
lead the group. Dr. Miles has led groups to Italy, Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Britain and the
Far East. He has significant performing experiences as a hornist and conductor throughout the U.S. and
in Europe.
Students may enroll in Music of the 19th Century or Symphonic Music for three transferable UWStevens Point undergraduate credits. Music of the 19th Century (MUS 320/520) satisfies the
requirement for music majors and counts as a humanities course (GEP:HU; GDR:HU1) for non-majors.
Symphonic Music (MUS 427/627) satisfies requirements for some music majors and counts as a
humanities course (GEP:HU; GDR:HU1) for non-majors.
Graduate credit can also be arranged at an extra cost and requires a research project after the trip.
Other Music Independent Study options can be arranged with Professor Miles. The above courses can
be audited at the same price although students registering for credit are given priority for admission.
$5000 (estimated) This figure includes 20 days lodging, breakfast and some dinners,
coach and train transportation, many entrance fees and performance tickets and three
undergraduate Wisconsin resident credits. Out of State surcharge is $250. The price is
based on 20 participants. Although airfare is not included, the UWSP International
programs Office will help identify flights and your financial aid can be applied to a
ticket purchase.
