Kickoff meeting

Liszt_at_the_Piano

On Thursday, January 16, the Music and Sound Studies Reading Group inaugurated itself with its first-ever meeting. All student members were present, and in addition to discussing a handful of articles, we drew up a plan for the rest of the semester. Kevin will serve as secretary, and Dan will help draw up a syllabus. The male-female ratio matched that represented in the above painting showcasing Lizst at the piano, in addition to perhaps Alexander Dumas, George Sand, Marie d’Agoult, Niccolo Paganini, Gioachino Rossini, with Lord Byron’s portrait overseeing the group from a frame on the wall.
