Music Workshop for Non-Majors and Majors: Research in Music (with professors Jeffers Engelhardt, Yvette Jackson, Klara Moricz, and Jason Robinson)

Do you think about music? Are you interested in music but haven’t played an instrument or taken a music course? Are you an experienced performer or composer? This is the music workshop series for you! Thinking about music takes many forms. It could mean performing and composing, or developing historical and cultural research into specific forms of music or using software to make or analyze music. Sponsored by the Department of Music, this series is open to all and offers the campus community different models for thinking about and doing music. Paired with the Music Department Tea Time (which takes place at 4:30 p.m. and immediately follows the workshop), the workshop series is an exciting, low-pressure way of expanding your understanding of music.

Research in Music: This installment of the workshop features a few of the College’s own faculty in a freewheeling panel discussion describing their research and what drew them to a life in music. Panelists include professors Jeffers Engelhardt, Yvette Jackson, Klara Moricz, and Jason Robinson. Come be inspired by and learn about various ways to do research in music.

Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation Information Session

The Foundation supports initiatives of public and private organizations, in the fields of research and studies, technological innovation and socially-aware practices.

The Foundation supports projects in three main geographical zones and focuses its efforts on three main areas.
• The Mediterranean basin, due to the geographic position of the Principality of Monaco.
• The Polar Regions, as privileged indicators of climate change evolutions.
• The Least Developed Countries (as defined by the United Nations official list), such as the countries in Sahelian Africa, which are severely impacted by the effects of climate change, the loss of biodiversity and water shortage.

The Foundation has three principal domains of action:
• To limit the effects of climate change and promote renewable energies.
