In the midst of the whirlwind…

March 5, 2012

At DePauw, it often seems we are too busy doing things to take time to write about them. Here we are, a third of the way through the semester, with what we hope is our last dusting of snow on the ground, and I finally take a moment to reflect on the amazing number of things that have happened in just five weeks. The School of Music has launched a new radio show, Music for Life, to tell CLA students, the Greencastle community, prospective students, parents and alumni about life in music at DePauw. The new weekly recital hour, on Wednesdays at 10:30, has been a big hit and a wonderful opportunity to take time out in the middle of our week to come together as a school and hear and support each other’s music. We welcomed Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, Joseph Schwantner to campus for our Music of the Twenty-First Century festival and American hero Vernon Jordan came back to be a part of it as well. Our renowned visiting professor Joachim Shamberger just completed a remarkable production of Albert Herring. Five weeks in and more incredible things to come. How lucky we are…

    Dear Dean,
    I just wanted to thank you so much for the new Music for Life programming that you are now providing to us parents. I have been disappointed that I cannot hear the music from your great musicians. My son gets to hear more performances than I do and I am beginning to get jealous. I was able to access the program with interviews from Dr. Ristow and the 3 concertos winners. I liked hearing their performances — I now know why they won!

      Thanks much for taking a moment to write. With so many exciting things going on, it’s hard to chronicle them all. I am glad you are listening to our show!
