Music In the Museum Stirred Up Emotion

Inspirational Post for 3/1/19
by Patricia Feager



"I do not think classical music faces any threat because new music

is being made through computer, as the real charm of classical

is its purity, and one who is seeking purity will surely

find classical music in spite of so many

alternatives." --- Adnan Sami



The Crowley Chamber Trio of the University of Dallas presented "Music in the Museum," on Thursday, February 28, 2019. I was fortunate to receive an invitation. Lucky for me, I got a front row, first chair seat. The last time I heard a live Classical Musical Concert was back when I was on an Elementary Grade School field trip. To me, the musicians, Kristin Van Clever, Jim Higgins, and Andrey Ponochevny sounded like something new to me and it was as if I was hearing Classical Music for the very first time. Adnam Sami was right - "the real charm of classical is its purity." 



The Museum of Biblical Art was the perfect setting to hear music arranged by Jim Higgins, who has appeared with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Des Moines Symphony, Rogue Valley Symphony, and the Illinois Symphony, Irving Symphony, Orchester der Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspiele and Belarusian State Symphony with Kristin Van Cleve, Director of the Music Department at the University of Dallas, Principal Second Violin with the Dallas Opera Orchestra, and Jim Higgins, adjunct professor at UD since 2001 who teaches Music History of the Western Worlds as well as providing individual instruction. They were phenomenal. The sounds were heavenly.



The Crowley Chamber Trio played in honor of "the late David Crowley and the David M Crowley Foundation." Music included Medley from the Merry Widow, Sonata in F for Violin and Piano, Op.24 Spring, and Piano Trio No. 1 in D Minor, Op.49.


What I discovered most interesting about Classical Music by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), Felix Mendelssohn (1809 - 1847), and Franz Lehar (1870 - 1948) was the difference in sound, personality, and feelings of emotion that practically reached down into my soul and stir up feelings I never felt with current musicians who use computer technology. Since I'm not a student of music, it appeared to me The Crowley Chamber Trio demonstrated polished skills they acquired over time through hard work, dedication, perfecting listening skills, and continuous practice to keep the culture of Classical Music alive.

Hello Patricia- - -my listening skills are not finely tuned to understand the nuances of music but that doesn't lessen my appreciation for those who write or perform.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP  There are days that classical music is the only music I want to listen to. The genius of the composers. Endre Barath, Jr. also appreciates and loves the classics. When I was younger I played the violin and was in the Orchestra in High School. I give it up and regret it.  My choices in music are very eclectic but I love classics.

Same here Endre Barath, Jr. there was always music playing in my house. My mother had the voice of a songbird. Alas, I did not inherit this gift.  Music does calm the savage beast, doesn't it?

Very nice photos Patricia!

I was never much of a classical music fan. At one point it would actually irritate me if my husband listened to it. Made me crazy.

For some reason that has changed and I do enjoy it now and then and appreciate it's beauty.

I have no explanation. LOL

Patricia the time I was at a live Classical Musical Concert was when my boys were in High School, so it has been a while for me also, but I would enjoy going to another concert again.

Nice event you attended. I'm a huge fan of Beethoven--love the emotions his music brings--while my husband (the engineer ) appreciates the purity and precision of Bach.

Sounds like a wonderful opportunity to hear live music, it really does make a difference however good a recording is. Like being at a sports event and watching it on TV.
