It's an interesting experiment when you take a bunch of students unfamiliar with the music school, and have them try to find a room hidden in the corner.  Although many of us FLEFF interns are out our element tonight here in Whalen, we're all here for a common purpose: A behind the scenes look into "The Concert for Microtopias"

I can't express how excited I am for FLEFF week. 

Not only will the concert in Hockett Hall at Ithaca College the Tuesday (March 27th) of FLEFF be an amazing spectacle, but it will be an awe-inspiring event where great minds and performers have come together to combine many works of art from music to acting to on the fly image processing.

It's "The Concert for Microtopias", a concert thinking in ways of bringing people together over something joyful.

Dr. Zimmerman told the interns that many of the people involved with the performance are those "who push the envelope and go intellectually and emotionally farther than they have ever gone before."

I can't wait to see how all these elements come together.

Pushing envelopes and going intellectually further might in fact be the purpose not only of concerts and FLEFF, but of higher education. What are you excited about for FLEFF week? What part of the behind the scenes session with Dr. Hougham and Dr. Martin did you find enlightening or inspiring? Have you been to concerts in the School of Music before?

I really enjoyed how they geared the presentation towards the audience. They explained things very clearly and it made the concert's mission very clear! What was your favorite piece of music?
