This article from Yale Alumni Magazine is not about dance, but rather the similar field of classical music. I found it thought provoking for the dance world as well.<P><B>Making Music Matter</B><P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><BR> At a time when classical music is seen to be in crisis, Yale's School of Music is not. Its blend of conservatory training and liberal-arts education is part of the reason.<P>Summer 2002 by Peter Hawes<P>There comes the day in their study with oboist and Amherst College music professor Lewis Spratlan when students get The Talk, the one in which he urges them not to go into music -- that is, unless they feel they can't live any other way. "Most of them choose music anyway," says Spratlan, who is also a Pulitzer Prize-winning composer. "Which is what I secretly want to happen."<P> The story is much the same at Spratlan's alma mater, the Yale School of Music, where 109 students received advanced degrees in music this year and -- driven by some against-all-common-sense conviction that their lives just wouldn't be complete if they did anything else -- walked into a very uneasy job market.<BR> <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="" TARGET=_blank><B>More...</B></A><p>[This message has been edited by citibob (edited July 23, 2002).]
