French Fun fact:
Did you know April fool’s day originated in France?
At least that is the most common theory about the earliest April fool’s celebration.
It began in 1582, when France adopted the Gregorian calendar. Before this time, New Year’s Day fell on March 25 rather than January 1. Those who continued to celebrate the old New Year at the beginning of April were called “fools” by their early adoption contemporaries.
April fools were those who still celebrated the holiday in the spring, and were the subject of pranks and ridicule by those who observed the New Year months ago.
In France, the fooled party is called the “poisson d’avril” which literally means “April fish”. The customary prank involves pinning a paper fish, also called the “poisson d’avril” to a friend’s back.

MUSIC APPRECIATION (3 hrs)
This course surveys music of the Western World. Emphasis is placed on the elements of music, terminology, composers, form, and style within a historical perspective. Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate skills in basic listening and understanding of the art of music. Special attention will be paid to the works of Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, and Schubert, as befits their geographic and historical importance to Salzburg and/or Vienna.
Wake Tech is bringing a total of 25 students to Salzburg Austria this year for the summer 2017 three week program.
In 2015 and 2016, we brought eleven students, it has now doubled! This program offers students to take a course, live in the dorms and get emerged in the Austrian culture.
