NEHMA Museum + Music Imagining Community: Logan 1948-49

Arts/Entertainment

This year, Museum + Music explores different conceptions of “community” suggested by the intersection of visual art and music. The first concert considers the artistic life of Cache Valley, and Utah in general, immediately after the Second World War. In 1948 Roy Harris, who was one of the preeminent composers of American classical music at the time, and his wife Johana, a virtuoso pianist with a career in her own right, accepted positions at Utah State Agricultural College. During their brief stay they contributed to a burgeoning cultural scene, much of which was fostered by New Deal programs. “Logan 1948-49” features guest solo pianist Jean-Louis Haguenauer, a renowned interpreter of the French repertoire and Professor of Piano at the Jacobs School of Music of Indiana University, Bloomington, as well as USU Caine College of the Arts Music Department faculty Bradley Ottesen and Mayumi Matzen.

Finding Your Place in the Aggie Family: Freshman drop-in group

Meeting

This is a weekly drop-in group for students who find it unexpectedly challenging to adjust to their new life at USU. Homesickness is common and it can be tough to feel like you have made meaningful connections at USU. Balancing school, friends, and work can be hard. Making new friends in a new environment may be more difficult than you anticipated. It may not feel like you fit into the Aggie Family. These struggles are very common. In this group, you will meet other students who are facing similar challenges. It will be a confidential and judgment-free place to provide mutual support, exchange ideas, and connect with each other. Bring your own lunch to the meeting so we can eat while we talk.
