VERMILLION, S.D. – The University of South Dakota Department of Music will present “Sound, Color, Shape…,” March 29-31, an interdisciplinary symposium exploring the human experience, featuring presentations by various departments across campus.
“I feel strongly about the inherent interdisciplinary nature of the aesthetic experience,” said Paul Lombardi, assistant professor of music. “I hope to connect students from diverse departments with each other and encourage them to consider the varied academic methods used to explore our human interpretations of the world.”
The keynote address will be delivered by Keith Salley, Associate Professor of Music Theory at Shenandoah University at 11 a.m., March 30, at the Colton Recital Hall in the Warren M. Lee Center for Fine Arts.
All events are free and open to the public. The symposium is sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning, the College of Fine Arts, the Department of Music and the Honors Program. It is also part of an ongoing series of events for USD’s semester long celebration of Yiddish culture, “The Green Violin.” For more information and a full schedule of symposium events, please visit the symposium's website.
