Classical music. It’s old. It’s complex. It can be intimidating. But somehow, the best of it goes beyond mere academic appreciation and makes you feel things. This is especially true if, like our Shannon Dohar, you get to participate in it. Shannon performed Beethoven’s Mass in C as a member of a choir and this piece became a signpost for her to what the possibilities are, helping her to form an appreciation for music as a whole. In episode 8 of Deeper Cuts, we talk about classical music and its relationship to the feels. We talk about how sacred music of all kinds intersect along common musical lines. Somehow, we talk about hockey and baseball, too. And we also talk about how music like this can be truly communal. So, take your place in the choir and we’ll begin.
