Music lectures offered

Learn how composers work at the February series of free music lectures by Paul M. Somers, sponsored by the Bay-Atlantic Symphony. In a hands-on class, you will discovery how composers create and set their musical thoughts on paper. This class is designed for people who do not read music and will rely on the drawing of simple designs by all the participants.

The lecture will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 21 at the Margate Public Library, 8100 Atlantic Ave., Margate.
