The next Saturday Seminar of the 2011–2012 academic year will take place on February 4. The topic will be The Role of Technology.
Led by Astrid Baumgardner, the coordinator of YSM’s new Career Strategies Office, the seminar will feature three guest panelists: Greg Anderson, Anya Grundmann, and Jessica Lustig. The seminar begins at 11 am on the stage of Morse Recital Hall.
All three guest speakers work in areas that blend music and technology in new and interesting ways. The use of technology and new media has become an increasingly important part of the broad fields of music and the arts, and many artists employ these technologies to broaden their audience, connect with their fans, and promote their careers.
“Our first seminar in September was a great success,” said Associate Dean Michael Yaffe, “and I hope that students will take advantage of this next session.”
Students must register for the Saturday Seminar in advance. Registration is now open.
