|Recurring Event (See all)

The mythology of Ancient Greece has provided some of the richest inspiration for creativity- especially in the work of Gustav Klimt. In honor of the centenary of  the great painter’s death, this three week extravaganza  with cultural historian and mythologist Kayleen Asbo will revel in the transformative myths that ignited his imagination and highlight how these enduring  archetypal themes have been portrayed across the centuries in Baroque, Classical and Contemporary music. Find out the deeper symbolism and significance behind some of Klimt’s most famous works, including Music and The Kiss. 

Kayleen Asbo, Ph.D is the music historian for the Santa Rosa Symphony and a professor of mythology at the Pacific Graduate Institute. Her interdisciplinary lectures and classes have been hailed as ‘”mind-blowing, totally addictive combinations of pure passion and exciting scholarship”.
