TED Talks With Group Discussion

Join us for the first session of a new series, “TED Talks Penn’s Village,” in which program participants view a TED Talk together and then discuss it with the help of a knowledgeable host. TED Talks (Technology, Entertainment, Design) are presentations from around the world in which people with a passion for a subject share that love with their audiences.

In this first session, Peter Schoenbach, a Penn’s Village member and professor at the Curtis Institute of Music, will lead the discussion of Tilson Thomas’ presentation, in which he traces the development of classical music through the development of written notation, the record, and the re-mix.

Conductor Michael Tilson Thomas is an all-around music educator -- connecting with global audiences, young musicians and concertgoers in San Francisco and London.

Have a passion for something others might be interested in? Interested in hosting an upcoming program? Find a TED Talk that you like and contact Donna Murphy at to discuss!
