Upcoming Events

Professor William Kindermann, School of Music, will be playing the Beethoven Concerto in C major op. 15, on Friday, February 20 at Krannert. It is one of the big pieces of Beethoven's first creative period, and features in the opening movement the longest solo piano cadenza in any of the Beethoven concertos. The slow movement is a quiet reflective piece with many dialogue passages between piano and clarinet, and the finale is a lively humorous rondo. The program includes a shorter piece by a graduate student composer named Rowan. The concert takes place in the Great Hall at 7:30. Tickets are $10, students $4.

On Monday, February 23, Professor Karen Schönwälder (Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious & Ethnic Diversity, Göttingen, Germany) will give a lecture on “Multiculturalism & Immigrant Integration: Political Debates & Social Realities,” at the Center for Advanced Studies at 12 noon.
