Greetings to all,

I’m pleased to present our May 2011 UST Department of Music newsletter. It has been another incredible year of music making and learning, and we’re very happy to be able to share some of the highlights with you. Each of our programs has experienced tremendous growth and opportunities, and this issue outlines some of those accomplishments.

The programs of the department continue to achieve national and international recognition. The incredibly popular Christmas Concert at Orchestra Hall was recorded for PBS again this year for the second time. It was aired across the United States on as many as three times more stations in comparison to the first televised program. 

I invite you to look inside and see what our students, faculty and staff have been up to this past academic year.

Matthew George, Chair
