Music & Music Education 2009-2010 Round Up

The Music and Music Education program at Teachers College stayed busy throughout the 2009-2010 school year. Students like Nicole Becker, Evelyn Troester, and Elizabeth Weissman gave recitals and two Teachers College ensembles, Spirit (a primarily instrumental and improvisation-based ensemble directed by Dr. Bert Konowitz) and the TC Chorus (a vocal ensemble directed by Dr. Dino Anagnost) gave performances in both semesters. Spirit’s first concert this year, in the fall, featured a guest performer, trombonist Chris Brubeck, and followed a panel on the state of improvisation in K-12 education in the spring.
Besides these performances, the program put on two Musical Serenades concerts, one at the end of each semester. These events featured applied music students throughout the program, all of whom were sponsored by program faculty. Dr. Lenore Pogonowski also led faculty and students in a holiday caroling party on the 1st floor of Zankel Hall in December 2009. in December 2009.
