I was thrilled to hear the new President of the University of Connecticut, Susan Herbst, on WNPR’s “Where We Live,” say very early in her interview, “interdisciplinary is the future.”
I hope the music department hears you! I hope it becomes the pervasive attitude that we can’t do what we do by simply focusing on what has been done before. Rather, we need to build on what has been done before, and reach further, pull from a broader spectrum of resources to go deeper into our specialty.
It almost seems ironic. It definitely seems more difficult. But it’s the future!
