For the health and safety of our patrons and speakers, masks may be required for indoor in-person Houston Seminar events, and we strongly prefer registrants to be fully vaccinated. Since events are held at a variety of venues with their own policies and protocols, there may be other requirements for some courses. We make every effort to inform guests in a timely manner if there are additional health and safety guidelines they will be asked to follow. Our trips and study tours, particularly those that include shared transportation or plane flights, may also require guidelines beyond those for in-person courses, which will be determined in conjunction with venues, vendors, and local guidelines. We will make every effort to announce these guidelines as far in advance as possible. Thank you for bearing with us as we continue to navigate the world of COVID-19 while bringing enriching experiences to our audiences.

At Home with Music
In a variety of home settings, pianist Clive Swansbourne will give a series of lecture-performances illustrating the diversity of musical language. He will discuss stylistic, formal, and technical aspects of music from different periods, sometimes concentrating on a single composition in detail.
Clive Swansbourne studied at the Royal College of Music in London and later received his doctorate from the Yale School of Music. He has won prizes in international competitions and performed with orchestras and at music festivals in Europe, Canada, and the U.S. In 1999 he inaugurated an ongoing series of lecture-recitals, “Classical Piano Matters,” for radio broadcast and cassette/CD distribution. In the fall of 2005 he performed the complete Beethoven piano sonata cycle to packed houses at the Rothko Chapel and presented a corresponding lecture series at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
