Ethnomusicology a First for Five Colleges The first Five College Ethnomusicology Student Symposium will be held April 26 in Sage Hall at Smith College from 9 am to 6 pm. Ten students will present their work in three panel sessions titled "Authenticity and Beyond," "Locating Hip-Hop," and "Sounds of New England." The daylong symposium will conclude at 5 pm with a keynote address titled "On the Ethnomusicology of Musical Process: Miles and Mali" given by Ingrid Monson, Quincy Jones Professor of African American Music at Harvard University. The symposium has been planned by a group of faculty who focus on ethnomusicology, a relatively new field within music study. One of the most recent forms of cooperation to emerge within music, this faculty committee last year sponsored a highly successful Five College World Music Festival at Hampshire College. This year, the focus shifts from performance to research, as some of their students—undergraduates and graduate students—take center stage to talk about their work as budding ethnomusicologists.

Glee Club Auditions The final round of tryouts for next year's Mount Holyoke Glee Club (for "rising" sophomores, juniors, seniors, Frances Perkins Scholars, and female staff or faculty) will take place Friday, May 2, and Monday, May 5. Sign up for a time on the bulletin board across from the music office in Pratt Hall. Be part of Christmas Vespers in Boston, sing in a Five College festival and with Cornell (men's) Glee Club, travel, and make excellent music!

Last week's CSJ contained an error in the article on faculty awards. Kennedy-Schelkunoff Professor of Physics Howard Nicholson's work with the Brookhaven National Laboratory involves studying the behavior of elementary particles in atomic nuclei. None of his work has been directly related to outer space.
