Author: Da Camera of Houston
In this Da Camera Music Encounter, students learn about ancient Greek culture and the form of the traditional Greek ode. They are introduced to the harp and make observations about the similarities and differences between the modern harp and the ancient Greek lyre. Students work independently to create an original poem, following the form of the Greek ode. At the end of class, students have the opportunity to recite their ode for the class accompanied by the “lyre.” Learn more about Music Encounters at
