Tuesday, April 11, 2017 11:45 am to 1:00 pm O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library, Great Hall, 2nd floor
Michael Klein, Justice and Peace Studies faculty member.
You are all invited to the library’s April 4 noonartsound presentation: Music as Metaphor for Leadership! Join us at noon in the O’Shaughnessy Room, where Mike Klein will demonstrate how the close collaboration evidenced by our own St. Thomas a capella singers provides a model for leadership. Enjoy the conversations, the music, and the insights. With the help of singers from the ever popular Cadenza and Summit Singers, it promises to be a note-worthy offering!
As Summit Singers president, Alex Noto explains, “leadership in a capella music requires a focused collaboration to make each song complete. Each member of our group takes the responsibility to perfect his own role and blend it with the others. If any part goes missing, the performance may not be successful.”
Invite your friends – all are welcome – cake and coffee will be provided.
The Summit Singers
Dr. Robert J. Werner, Professor Emeritus
Dan Gjelten, Associate Vice Provost for University Libraries
All are invited to noonartsound on Wednesday, March 1, at noon in the O’Shaughnessy Room of the O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library. This month’s talk features the Culture of the Dakota and Contemporary Native American Music.
Dr. Robert J. Werner, Professor Emeritus, will speak about one of Minnesota’s principal Native groups: the Dakota; their migrations, history, culture and music. Dan Gjelten, Associate Vice Provost for University Libraries, will introduce themes and sounds heard in the music of the Plains Native Americans and several well-known artists.
We look forward to this conversation and hope you will join us at noon on March 1.
