The next workshop in our series with Turtle Lab is open! Get in quick, an incredible opportunity to work with one of Australia's most exciting vocalists, Gian Slater.

It was an exciting day in my contemporary music history class. Three students presented outstanding oral presentations. One was on Makrokosmos I by George Crumb. The others were on Philip Glass and "Aria" by John Cage. What was so fantastic was that these were done by high school students. I was very proud of all three!!
