In this lecture, Dr. Meghan Bennnett examines the world of pop artists and their music, analyzing the ways in which pop music can influence our work as classical artists. Artists like Nina Simone, Beyonce, Drake, and Audra McDonald will be featured. Additional artists like Lady Gaga and Celine Deon will be included as well. Commentary, clips of documentaries, and interviews will link these pop artists to our study and journey as classical artists.
