Musicology students play “White Christmas” and other holiday music on historical string instruments in the viola da gamba family at a noontime concert in the UCC. (Students L to R: Michael White, David Tedford, Michele Aichele, Hang Nguyen).
Marian Wilson Kimber has recently written about the role of poetic recitation in concert life at Musicology Now, the blog of the American Musicological Society. Wilson Kimber has also been posting materials from the history of elocution on her tumblr, Elocutionary Arts. Follow her on Twitter: @MWilsonKimber.
