Please join us for the College of Arts and Social Sciences Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series.

In this lecture we welcome Professor Kenneth Lampl from the School of Music

Is it possible to achieve historical greatness to the extent of a Mozart or Beethoven in the present day?

What purpose does classical music serve in the modern age?

Will our current crop of music stars become the Mozart’s of tomorrow?

“Where are the Mozart’s of Today” is an examination through lecture and creative research into the question of the relevance and condition of the culture of classical music today.

It is a personal journey of a composer confronting the weight of historical tradition as well as the disposable nature of the current contemporary musical landscape.

The format of the lecture will be discourse, musical examples of creative research and discussion.

Please register via Eventbrite.
