WSRC Scholar Liane Curtis
Celebrating the 150th birthday of the great American composer, Amy Beach – Fall 2017.
Student Employment Job ID: 525347
Composer Amy Beach (1867-1944) began her career as a composer in Boston, and wrote her most successful large works while living in that city. To celebrate her life and works, the student and Scholar will reach out to Boston-area musicians to make sure they are aware of the upcoming anniversary. They will plan two concerts (and possibly other events, for instance presentations/panel discussions) preceding the concerts, to take place in the fall of 2017. As time allows, they will also reach out to other musicians and ensembles nationally. They will keep a calendar of events honoring or celebrating Beach that will take place in her anniversary year. These events will be listed on the Amybeach.org website that was started in 2014 during my work with my SSP partner at that time.
Student and Scholar will work with the student collaboratively in planning the events of the anniversary celebration. They will work together in planning the concert(s) and considering the musicians to include. They will also work together in gathering the names of musicians and ensembles to let them know about the anniversary. With their own laptops they can meet together and work as a team gathering this information writing the correspondence to send out.
