Musically Speaking Lecture

School of Music professor Alison Altstatt will present a lecture titled "Re-membering the Wilton Processional: A Manuscript Lost and Found." This paper concerns a notated leaf of an English medieval manuscript held in the Special Collections of the University of Iowa Libraries. Musical, textual and codicological evidence supports the identification of the leaf as a fragment of a processional from Wilton Abbey, an important center for women’s Latin learning from its tenth-century foundation to its sixteenth-century dissolution. The recovery of the University of Iowa leaf, along with more than thirty others, provides a window into the abbey’s musico-poetic tradition, its processional liturgies, and its dramatic rituals. This lecture is given as part of the "Musically Speaking" series. This event is free and open to the public.

Guest Artist Master Class: Robert Dorer, trumpet

Visiting artist Robert Dorer will present a master class. Dorer joined the Minnesota Orchestra in 1997 as second trumpet after six seasons as principal trumpet with the New Mexico Symphony. He previously was a member of the Santa Fe Opera Orchestra, Santa Fe Pro Musica and Florida West Coast Symphony, and performed as guest principal with the New Zealand Symphony. He has performed as soloist with orchestras in Florida, North Carolina, New Mexico and Minnesota. This event is free and open to the public. 

CVMPO Beethoven 5K

Proceeds will beneft a program that buys instruments for schools so all students have the opportunity to be involved in music. The goal of the CVMPO is to allow UNI music students the opportunity to share the impact that music involvement has had on their lives and allow younger students to explore the opportunities that music has to offer.
