Welcome to our virtual classroom where we offer 100 classes each year ranging from history and music to art and science. Our classes are for personal enrichment and are about 1-1/2 hours long.
Classes are conducted via Zoom by specialists in a variety of fields, many of whom are professors or retired professors.
We typically think of musical satire as fun parodies or novelty songs by the likes of Spike Jones and Weird Al Yankovich, but true musical satire involves making fun of music itself. This could be an unexpected shift from classically influenced rhythms to jazzier influences or by incorporating a modern pop tune into a classical favorite.Peter Schickele, under the pseudonym P. D. Q. Bach, is probably the best known artist of this particular brand of music. Comedian Allan Sherman teamed up with Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops Orchestra for a album entitled “Peter and the Commissar,” which poked fun at communism in the Soviet Union. Vincent Young plays, sings and narrates. Jan. 25 (Wed) 1:30 p.m.
The Continuing Education Center at Rancho Bernardo is a 501(c)(3) organization established in 1978. For our first 25 years we were part of San Diego State University's Extended Studies Department. In 2003, we became a free-standing, non-profit organization offering 100 classes a year for personal enrichment.
CEC is a non-sectarian and apolitical organization. We offer a platform for the exchange of ideas and do not endorse the views of those who speak in our classes.

As with most non-profit organizations, about two-thirds of our operating funds are derived from the generosity of donors. We can't do it without you. Thanks.
