About Convocation:
School of Music Convocations are designed to bring together all music majors at Ithaca College. This year's Convocation will explore the theme "New Ways of Looking at Music," with guest artists WeBe3 leading the discussion. Attendance is required of all Music majors. Students must pick up their recital attendance cards in the music office before the convocation, as the card will require one punch for these events. If students have a course scheduled outside of the School of Music at this time, they should turn in a copy of their schedules with their recital cards to be excused from these events. An additional write-up on convocation can be found here.
