Music Monday on Harmony Fine Arts Join us every Monday for a new musical selection.

Listen to a composer who created music during the same time period that Renoir painted, Antonin Dvorak. This week I picked a little bit longer selection but I think your family will find it easy to listen to and enjoy as you work on your sketches.
