Keith Kaiser and Beth Peterson, associate professors of music education, recently gave a presentation entitled "Music for Life" at the New York State Band Director's Association Annual Symposium. The presentation was  part of a featured performance of the Ithaca Concert ("community") band, for which they serve as co-conductors. The community band gave a highly acclaimed performance that was interspersed with a presentation that focused on research and philosophy related to the values and benefits of lifelong music participation.

I'm happy to announce that calendars for the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 academic years have been approved.  The Academic Calendar Committee met last fall and held three meetings to discuss the various related issues, share differing perspectives, review the historical events that led to the calendar’s present form, and consider other institutions’ calendars.
