Howard Pollack to Speak at CGU

This Thursday, October 11, from 2pm to 4pm, the esteemed scholar and author, Howard Pollack, will be visiting us at the Claremont Graduate University to discuss the life and work of Aaron Copland!

His thorough 1999 book, Aaron Copland: The Life and Work of an Uncommon Man – which happens to be one of my textbooks in my current CGU course, “American Titans: The Music of Copland and Bernstein” :mrgreen: – has been described by the New York Times as “the definitive study of Aaron Copland’s life and work, no doubt for a long time to come,” and has received the Irving Lowens Award from the Society for American Music and a Deems Taylor Award from ASCAP.

My classmates and I are truly honored to have him as our guest!

Where?: Albrecht Auditorium, in the John Stauffer Hall of Learning.

P.S. – You can find all sorts of great artifacts from Copland’s life on the Library of Congress website! Check it out here!
