Music and Travel

For my CURCA Presentation, I will be discussing the inclusion of a chapter into the textbook Resonances: Engaging Music in Its Cultural Context which has been utilized heavily through an enrolled course of Music as A Social Experience. The chapter I wrote deals with the idea of music and its relation to travel. Music and Travel are two things that go together quite well and, in my presentation, I discuss three specific examples that showcase the pairing. These examples first include a folk categorized song, Home, which was written by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. Next will be a popular categorized song, Beautiful Day, written by U2. Finally, I wish to discuss a classically categorized song, Pastoral 6th Symphony, composed by Ludwig Beethoven. My goal with these three examples is to tie music and travel together.
