Huge List of Classical Music Exam Bloopers

Andrew Levin has compiled America's Favorite Classical Music Bloopers from papers, exams, and assignments handed in by his Music Appreciation students over the years at Clemson. Below I've included some lowlights highlights:

[Chopin] died at age 39 from tuberculosis, which was a popular disease in the nineteenth century.

Two musical innovations arose during [the Middle Ages]. Name one. [Answer:] Wheel barrow

How did audiences first react to Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. [Answer:] They held a riot

The musicians instilled a suffering to the work that made you feel as if you were suffering yourself.

I also liked the surprise piece...I think the title was Burglar's Holiday.

It was a first for both of us to experience live jazz music. It was a family atmosphere with an exception of one naked drunk, but that's expected anywhere, right?
