Songwriting Faculty 20th Anniversary Concert
2007 marks the 20th year that the Songwriting Department has been in existence. This alone would be auspicious but is more so when you couple it with the fact that the department is the very first Songwriting Department to exist in any college or university. Its curriculum is unique and its faculty and chair have created books and online courses that underline the integrity of the department and the techniques that are taught. The songs that will be performed reflect the spectrum of styles that the songwriting faculty members teach and use in their own writing. There are contemporary folk, r&b/hip-hop, rock, and pop, as well as country songs on this program. Some of the songs will be sung by the faculty members and others will be sung by some of our best student performers.
