Music students, we’ve got most of the Folkways recordings that were highlighted in yesterday’s lecture by Daniel Sheehy, director of the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage. Online access is provided through Smithsonian Global Sound, which provides many different ways to browse or search the collection. In addition, the Crouch Fine Arts Library has almost 300 CDs available for check-out, as well as LP vinyl records going back to the 1950s. Use these great collections of recordings to expand your musical horizons!
There was even some foot-stomping action last Friday as the Morpheme Saxophone Quartet performed in the noontime Musical Moments series. They gave an amazing performance for a very appreciative audience.
When: Monday, December 7, 2015 at 5:30pm-7:30pm
Where: Hooper Schaefer Student Lounge
Come check out the latest work created by Baylor University photography students. Come join us for creative art, stimulating conversation, and good food. All prints are available for purchase. The event is free and the experience priceless.
We were blessed yesterday by the heavenly voices of the Chamber Singers performing Christmas music in the Allbritton Foyer. Former Crouch staff member Cody Miller conducted this piece.
There’s nothing like great music to get you into the Christmas spirit, and the Crouch Library has recordings for (almost) every taste.

Last Wednesday, we were treated to a performance of a Brahms quintet by string students from the School of Music. This was the first of an occasional series of short performances at noon. Come tomorrow, Tuesday, for the next installment–there just might be Christmas music!

I’m thrilled to announce that my artist’s book, KnownUnknown has been selected to appear in two more juried shows after it’s debut in the Ideation Experience show at Abecedarian Gallery in Denver, Colorado this summer.
My book is currently part of Words|Matter: A Library for Artist’s Books exhibition in Chicago (October 3-29) and was also chosen to appear in Blood Quantum (November 6 – December 19) at 23 Sandy Gallery in Portland, Oregon.
I am honored to have been selected for these three juried shows alongside many well known book artists that I admire and have collected as part of the Baylor Book Arts Collection.
If you are a current student or faculty member in the Baylor School of Music, please follow the link below to take our quick online survey. It takes only 1-2 minutes, and you can enter a drawing to win a $25 gift card to Starbucks or the Baylor Bookstore. Two of each will be given away.
