Our Classical Music History Tournament represents a unique opportunity for music scholars to play in a competition using audio-based tossups. These will constitute 50% of the questions, which will focus on the development of modern Classical music from its origins in the Renaissance period up until the present-day. Will your tournament experience recall Beethoven’s Ode to Joy or Chopin’s Marche Funèbre? Take the challenge of our Classical Music History tournament to find out!
