After returning from my final trip of 2009, I have taken some time to reflect on the numerous successes of Berklee's international programs over the past year. It is appropriate to send a heartfelt thanks to the many alumni, students, faculty, and partners who have helped to make this past year truly exceptional.

Mark O'Connor Helps Launch American Roots Music Program

 

In December, students and faculty who specialize in traditional American music had a rare opportunity to learn from and perform alongside one of the contemporary legends of American music. During the week of December 7, 2009, world-renowned fiddle virtuoso and composer Mark O'Connor spent four days on campus working with students in preparation for a December 10 concert. The show, staged in the Berklee Performance Center, offered a showcase for O'Connor's matchless playing and compositions and for the announcement of a new educational initiative at the college.

The State of The College

 

During his annual state of the college address on November 19, 2009, President Roger H. Brown told the Berklee community that the college has held its own in the current economic climate, meeting the goals outlined in the 2005 strategic plan, and going forward.

Dr. Emmylou and Company

 

Country music icon Emmylou Harris accepted an honorary doctorate from Berklee College of Music at the 9th Annual Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park on Sunday, October 4, 2009. Longtime Harris friend Linda Ronstadt and bluegrass banjo pioneer Earl Scruggs were on hand for the presentation by Berklee President Roger Brown just before Harris took the festival's Banjo Stage to play her set. Ronstadt and Scruggs are past Berklee honorary doctorate recipients.
