Celebrate Columbia Alumni at Brown!

Join CAARI for two exciting events as we celebrate the work of our alumni in the field of music!

David Josephson, a Columbia Alumnus and Professor of Music at Brown University, has devoted a lifetime to teaching at the Rhode Island Ivy-League school. This weekend the Brown University Orchestra will celebrate Josephson in honor of his 40+ years of teaching service at Brown, during a performance at Sayles Hall featuring the riveting works of Mozart, Saint-Saëns, and Bartók.

Josephson received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D.  "with distinction"  in musicology from Columbia University prior to beginning his Brown teaching career in 1972.

Sunday, May 8 at 2 p.m.

Prior to the May 6th concert beginning at 4 p.m. at  Brown's Orwig Music Building  Room 315, the Brown Univeristy Music Department will host a free and public discussion titled "Not Modern & Loving It," given by Richard Taruskin, Professor Emeritus, University of California, Berkeley, as well as an eminent musicologist who received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. in historical musicology from Columbia.
