Circles,” from his first series (1841), is one of my favorite Emerson essays. While the gendered language and the Romantic search for the unattainable and infinite certainly date it, his ideas about change as a constant, that “every ultimate fact is only the first of a new series,” has inspired me over the years through the many remarkable changes in our profession. “Our life is an apprenticeship to the truth,” writes Emerson, “that around every circle another can be drawn; that there is no end in nature, but every end is a beginning; that there is always another dawn risen on mid-noon, and under every deep a lower deep opens.” Emerson challenges us to be cognizant of and a participant in change’s continuum.....Read More

summit2019 headerAnnouncing the 2019 Summit!
21st Century Music School Design


Carolina/College Music Society Summit 2.0 is a workshop and experiential game-based challenge on the future of music in higher education. It builds on the unprecedented success of a sold-out 2016 event, during which interdisciplinary teams designed innovative new undergraduate degrees.

This time, our focus is on VALUES and CHOICES, considering a different and immediately relevant question: How can music programs better emphasize 21st century priorities within existing courses and curricular structures? Multiple teams will collaborate to reimagine traditional offerings, and then pitch proposals during a friendly competition.
