Beethoven in Beijing: Nixon, Mao, the Cultural Revolution and the Philadelphia Orchestra

Join us for a 10-hour seminar which uses the documentary film Beethoven in Beijing as a lens to examine Nixon’s 1972 visit to China, Mao, music, and the Philadelphia Orchestra’s 1973 tour to China.

Participants must complete all five components within the seminar period (January 24-February 18, 2022) in order to receive a certificate of completion for 10 contact hours and a $50 stipend.
