This week, on Music for Life, Music from DePauw...

Elissa Harbert
we meet musicology professor Elissa Harbert and 21CM intern Brooke Addison...

he’s been here for less than a month, but so what — we’re stranding professor Thomas King on a desert island with a defective iPod...

Hannah learns about the summer abroad that Dana Hart and Annie Chase had, and Rachel talks to Burke Stanton about his semester abroad...

and we bring you some great performances that DePauw students, faculty, and guests presented this week, including from the inaugural performance at Music on the Square!


Elena Escudero and pianist Tony Weinstein perform Libby Larsen’s “Bucking Bronco” at this past Wednesday’s Student Recital Hour.
