December Message from Music Department Chair
Saturday, December 3, 2011
I hope that you all enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving break. We are now in the stretch run to the end of the semester and we all encourage you to perform your best in the coming weeks.
The Music Department hosts a string of concerts in the coming days, including Lessons and Carols (December 2 and 4), Choral Concert (December 6), Chamber Music Concert (December 6), Jazz Ensemble Concert (December 7), and Student Recital (December 8). See inside the newsletter for more on these events. We look forward to seeing many of you perform at these events. If you’re not performing, please come to see your fellow music students at work.
Spring registration is still underway and the Music Department is offering a wide variety of courses to fit major and minor programs and to represent many of the fields of music: composition, theory, performance, musicology/music history, and ethnomusicology/world music. During the Intersession, we are offering MUSC 102D: Introduction to Jazz, taught by visiting professor Scott Walton.
We all wish you a successful end to this semester and very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Stay well and come back ready to embrace music more passionately than ever.
