Chicago and Michigan Law Schools Information Session

Attend this combined information session to hear from University of Chicago Law School and University of Michigan Law School admissions representatives about their respective programs and admissions processes. Pizza will be served!

The University of Chicago Law School occupies a unique niche among this country's premier law schools. Located on a residential campus in one of America's great cities, Chicago offers a rigorous and interdisciplinary professional education that blends the study of law with the humanities, the social sciences, and the natural sciences. Students, faculty and staff form a small, tightly knit community devoted to the life of the mind. Learning is participatory. Chicago does not seek to impose a single viewpoint or style of thought on its students. Instead, its faculty exposes students to contrasting views, confident in students' abilities to choose their own paths.

The University of Michigan Law School, one of the oldest law schools in the nation, was founded in 1859, and is now housed in the Cook Quadrangle on the University of Michigan’s central Ann Arbor campus. Unlike other highly selective law schools established in that era, admission was never restricted to the privileged. The School has a sizable and diverse faculty, with many preeminent in their fields. The careers of alumni also speak eloquently to the strength of the School; its graduates are leaders serving with distinction in the public, private, and academic sectors in this nation and beyond.

Brooklyn Rider and Magos Herrera

M@A: Brooklyn Rider and Magos Herrera: Dreamers

Music at Amherst Parallels Series

Tickets are available though package sales on sale from July 23-August 29, and thereafter in the 14 days before each concert through https://amherst.universitytickets.com or the Concert Office at 413-542-2195, or concerts@amherst.edu.

In society, poets and songwriters play the essential role of dreamers, opening up avenues of hope for others. Despite the oppressive regimes that prevailed throughout much of Latin America and Spain in the twentieth century, the dreamers held onto an unending love for beauty and humanity. Mexican-born jazz singer Magos Herrera and the omnivorous string quartet Brooklyn Rider join forces for an unforgettable musical journey, reinterpreting classics of the era from Mexico, Cuba, Peru, Chile, Brazil, Argentina and Spain, and celebrating such luminaries as Octavio Paz, Federico García Lorca and Rubén Darío.

Brooklyn Rider offers eclectic repertoire in gripping performances that continue to attract legions of fans and draw rave reviews from classical, world, and rock critics alike.

“They are four classical musicians performing with the energy of young rock stars jamming on their guitars, a Beethoven-goes-indie foray into making classical music accessible but also celebrating why it was good in the first place.” –Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Magos Herrera is regarded as one of the most expressive, beautiful voices and most active vocalists in the contemporary Latin American jazz scene. She is best known for her eloquent vocal improvisation and a bold style that elegantly blends and surpasses language boundaries.

“Herrera is stretching the very notion of jazz singing, pushing past the diva pleasantries into a sound that’s bold, thrilling and effortlessly global.” –NPR

A public masterclass/workshop follows this M@A Series performance at 10 a.m. on Sunday, September 30, 2018. Free and open to the public. For room postings, please see signage upon arrival.
