Visiting Scholar – Dr. Bill F. Faucett

Please join us next week as we welcome Dr. Bill Faucett, Director of Development in the Center of The Arts at the University of South Florida, to our campus. He will be giving a lecture titled, “Chiefly Research: An Historical Examination of a World-Renowned Band,” in which he will share a part of his forthcoming book on the history of the FSU Marching Chiefs and discuss some of the research process. Before he became a musicologist and specialized in George Whitfield Chadwick and the musical history of Boston, Dr. Faucett was the drum major of the Chiefs. Please note that this talk will not be held during our regular SfM meeting time, but rather on Monday, October 23rd, from 4 to 5 pm in Longmire Recital Hall. A reception will follow. We hope to see you there!

[Concert] Collegium Musicum and Cantores Musicae Antiquae: “A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols”

Friday, December 6th, 2013, 7:00 pm
Collegium Musicum and Cantores Musicae Antiquae
“A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols”
St. John’s Episcopal Church

At the close of World War I, the first service of nine lessons and carols was held on Christmas Eve, 1918, at King’s College, Cambridge. Since then, English schools and universities have traditionally marked the end of the fall term with a service of lessons and carols. Join us as the FSU Early Music Ensembles celebrate the last day of the fall semester at FSU with a program that includes the traditional nine readings, untraditionally read in ancient and modern languages, and interspersed with carols and music for the Christmas season from the Old and New Worlds.
