  • Music and Libraries: Things Ain’t What They Used to Be: The Changing Landscape of Music Libraries Jim Farrington Head of Public Services, Sibley Music Library, Eastman School of Music Date: Thursday, October 20, 2016 Time: 4:00 pm-5:00 pm

    Music libraries, such as Eastman’s Sibley Music Library, are facing several significant challenges that will affect the way they deliver information to the students, faculty, and musicians who rely on them. Some of these challenges come from outside — issues of property rights, changes in the music and publishing industries, shrinking budgets, etc.—while others manifest themselves in rising expectations from our users combined with their increased use of resources outside normal library means. Mr. Farrington will discuss how Sibley came to its position of prominence among music libraries, its role as a true research library, and how we are trying to deal with some of the most significant issues facing us.

    Improvisation: Inspiration and Meaning in Music

    Christopher Azzara Professor & Chair, Music Education Department Affiliate Faculty of Jazz Studies and Contemporary Media, Eastman School of Music Date: Thursday, November 3, 2016 Time: 4:00 pm-5:00 pm

    Improvisation in music is the spontaneous expression of meaningful musical ideas — it is analogous to conversation in language. As presented here, key elements of improvisation include personalization, spontanity, anticipation, prediction, interaction, and being “in the moment”. Interestingly, we are born improvisers, as evidenced by our behavior in early childhood. This state of mind is clearly demonstrated in children’s play. When not encouraged to improvise as a part of our formal music education, the very thought of improvisation invokes fear. If we let go of that fear, we find that indeed we are improvisers. Improvisation enables musicians to express themselves from an internal source and is central to developing musicianship in all aspects of music education.

    The Highlands at Pittsford, the Eastman School of Music, and the University of Rochester have joined forces to create an experience with music that enriches the heart, nourishes the mind, and heals the soul. These free lectures are taught by highly regarded Eastman artists, performers, composers, and scholars who believe in the power of music to transform lives. Both programs in this Fall semester will be held in the Community Center at The Highlands at Pittsford, 100 Hahnemann Trail. The Highlands’ “campus” is located off Route 31, just east of the village of Pittsford. The Community Center is an ideal setting for learning and socializing with curious, like-minded peers and parking is conveniently located in the visitors’ lot right outside the main entrance. The Eastman School of Music, the University of Rochester, and The Highlands at Pittsford are committed to the concept of lifelong learning. If you are committed too, we encourage you to register for this musically, socially, and intellectually diverse experience.
