School of Music Convocation to explore "Bridges & Barriers" of musicianship, presented by new Dean Karl Paulnack
Contributed by Jenny Stockdale on 09/03/2013
Event to begin with a faculty performance of the original Nicholas Walker composition "Summer Thing"
Commenting on the theme of the discussion, Paulnack explained, "Musicians have the ability to build bridges that overcome differences, reactivate damaged brain pathways, and facilitate communication and connection. Paradoxically, we cannot build those bridges without also building barriers; in the course of our work, we need both."
Kicking off the Convocation, four School of Music faculty members will give a special collaborative performance of "Summer Thing," an original composition by associate professor of performance studies Nicholas Walker. The arrangement will feature Walker (bass) and fellow School of Music faculty members Frank Campos (trumpet), Greg Evans (Drums), and Mike Titlebaum (sax).
Note for Music Students: School of Music Convocations are designed to bring together all music majors at Ithaca College. Music students can receive recital attendance credit for this event, but must pick up their recital attendance cards in the music office before the convocation.
