The College of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Office and Office of Research and Economic Development are helping UAB’s musicians and creative writers to make music, to write, and to publicize their arts. Associate Dean Rebecca Bach has been working with the Music and English Departments to fund these efforts.
Funded projects include the commissioning of a new choral and steel drum work celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. UAB’s Choral Director, Brian Kittredge, will premiere this work next January. One of our opera singers, Won Cho, is being funded to perform in Milan and to have his arias recorded on a CD produced there.
