  • been so closely aligned with the arts that it becomes necessary to work actively to let people knowwe're not "just" music and art. While continuing to affirm the quality and importance of what wedo, he knows that other aspects of the University need to be widely proclaimed as well.

    As I reflected on his talk, I realized that we might well adopt the same theme in the College ofMusic. Those who are associated with one part of our college or another know the high quality asso-ciated with that particular segmen! and some parts of the College such as our preeminent jazzpro-gram are well known by the national and international music communities. However, as we workto spread our reputation and have constantly increasing numbers of people know about what wedo, it is important to emphasize the wide array of strengths that characterize our College.

    We have just released a new sampler CD, entitled Collaborations: The College of Music t theMillennium. Thirteen tracks demonstrate the excellence of various performing ensembles coveringthe span of our activities, but we're not "just" performance. Historical research from our Center forSchenkerian Studies led this fall to the Dallas Symphony's world premiere full performance ofKlezki's Second Symphony, one of a number of works rediscovered through the Center that hadbeen lost during the Holocaust. But we're not "just" historical research. Our Texas Center for Musicand Medicine just won a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts to develop and host aninternational conference on musicians' health, which will explore, among other things, means bywhich schools can provide appropriate instruction to meet NASM's recently established guidelineon injury prevention. But we're not "just" involved with improving music teaching. ProfessorDarhyl Ramsey's project to provides instruction on donated band instruments to elementaryschools students in the disadvantaged Owsley Community, and Professor Karrell ]ohnsory througha major ASTA/NSOA grant oversees the teaching by our students of 747 elementary school stringstudents. But we're not "just" outreach.

    And while we're at it, we're not "just" regional. Please note our recently compiled and still growingFact Sheet on page 13 of this issue, which gives some indication of the North Texas diaspora and itsinfluence on the musical life of the whole country. We had a particularly proud hour in Octoberwhen Regents Professor Cindy McTe's new symphony was premiered by the National Symphonyin Washington and New York to unqualified acclaim in the press. A reception celebrating the NewYork performance brought together alumni from many specializations and a restaurant party after-ward was spontaneously joined by the great Latin jazz artist Paquito D'Rivera, who proclaimed,when he realized who we were, that the greatest jazz ensembles in the country were at UNT!

    I could go on with many more examples, but I hope it becomes clear that our strength is the sum ofour many strengths and their infinite possibilities for interaction. We will be working as hard as pos-sible to promote the knowledge that neither the University nor the College of Music is "just. ..i' nomatter how wonderful "..." may be!

    We're not just...The University of North Texas System has a new Chancello4 Lee Jackson, whohas impressed everyone with his quickly developed insight into our large andcomplex university. At a talk earlier this fall, he said that one of his themeswould be "UNT is not just..." His point is that the University's reputation has

    Generations of singers, from the Class o11939 to the Class of 2001 (picturedabove in Winspear Performance Hall), attended September's Choral Reunioryin honor of Frank McKinley's long and successful career.

    ()

    During the last weekend of September more than 150 formermembers of the UNT choirs, many of whom went on to pur-sue careers in music, returned to campus for a two-daychoral reunion. For some it was the first chance in decadesto sing together again, for others it was the opportunity toshow gratitude to their former professors, but for all it was awelcome excuse merely to be together again at UNT.

    At the opening receptiory past and present choir directors,including jerry McCoy, Mel lvey, Henry Gibbons, and FrankMcKinley-those who have built the College of Music's choralstudies program into the nationally recognized program it istoday-were toasted (and roasted) by their former students.

    In addition to honoring the choir directors, "we honoredevery person who has joined hearts and voices to make beau-tiful music together through the years," said ]ean HarrisonRobbins ('50).

    Saturday was a day to relive old memories. The MurchisonPerforming Arts Center lobby held tables of pictures, pro-grams, and other memorabilia of choir concerts and tours.Inside Winspear Performance Hall, alumni joined voices withthe A Cappella Choir, reminding many of the binding powerof music. According to Charles Nelson ('50), of Abilene,Texas, "we were glad we were there because we cried KyrieEleison with Bach and AIle Menschen u)erden Brder withBeethoven and Hosanna in excelsis Deo with Verdi. Together,with the help of the masters, we became greater than ourindividual capacities and better for it. I think sometimes wedon't realize the power of what we do when we make music."

    "I think sometimeswe don't realize thepower of what we dowhen we makemusic."

    Brusilow, musicinsince the age of fiae,has conducted the

    LINT Symphony

    Orchestra for thepast thirteen yers.

    Counterpoint: Who was yourmentor as an aspring violinist?

    Brusilow: My mentor was Dr.Jani Szanto, who came to thiscountry in 1939 frorn Munich,Germany where he had beenprofessor of violin. He came toPhiladelphia where he foundedthe Philadelphia MusicalAcaderny. I studied there with

    Anshel Brusilow fT'Brusilow: Conducting professionals and university stu-dents differ greatly. 'With the students, I am teaching thernthe music with the understanding that they probably havenever heard it. That in itself is a challenge. When they dolearn and perform it well, it is very rewarding.Professionals are expected to know the music when theyfirst come to rehearsal. I try to teach the students to learnthe notes ahead of time.

    Counterpoint: How do you go about choosing your reper-toire for the semester?

    Brusilow: I choose repertoire that I believe will be impor-tant to those students who will go on to pursue a musicalcareer. It should give them the basics that they will need toknow.

    Counterpoint: How competitive is it for students to beaccepted into the Symphony Orchestra?

    Brusilow: It is highly cornpetitive, especially with thewoodwinds and brass. The strings, although they ale very

    when in my teens, but rny dream was always to conduct,and I began seriously studying with Piere Monteux when Iwas sixteen.

    Counterpoint: V/hy did you choose to come to UNT?

    Brusilow: Because the Dean at the tirne was Ken Cuthbert,a longtirne friend, and he offered rne a visiting professor-ship for one year.

    Counterpoint: If you only intended to stay one year, whydid you stay longer?

    Brusilow: I loved the young musicians, the faculty, the uni-versity environrnent, and the life style which was so com-pletely diffelent from what I had been doing for so manyyears. I was enjoying myself, and I still am.

    Counterpoint: In your opinion, what is the most challeng-ing piece to conduct?

    Brusilow: The rnost challenging piece to conduct is thepiece I happen to be working on at the time.

    Counterpoint: You are a fonner conductor of the DallasSymphony Orchestra, and cunently serve as conductor ofthe Richardson Symphony Orchestra. How does it differ toconduct at a university level versus at a professional level?

    COUNTERPOINT

    hirn for seven years.

    Counterpoint: As aviolinist, you served asconceftmaster for manyorchestras. When andwhy did you decide topursue conducting?

    Brusilow: I alwayswanted to conduct. Ihad concertized exten-sively as a violinist

    good players, are still lacking in numbers, but we are get- a\ting there. \-/'

    Counterpoint: Has the current economic recession hurtscholarship funding for these students?

    Brusilow: Yes, the current economy has affected ourscholarship funding trernendously. I hope sincerely that theeconomy will turn around quickly. We are desperately inneed of financial support. This is one of the finest musicschools in the country and very deserving ofhelp.

    Counterpoint: Last April, the Symphony Orchestra andGrand Chorus collaborated for a performance of GustavMahler's Symphony No. 2 in C tninor. Few other collegesare able to mount such a large scale symphonic work. Whatenabled the College of Music to do it, and how did the col-laboration affect your regular rehearsal process?

    Brusilow: Unlike most schools, we had the forces to per-form this gigantic work- chorus, soloists, orchestra, and allthe extra players. The rnain difhculty was getting them alltogether for rehearsals. Some could only tehealse at a spe-cial time, others had to leave early. The chorus could onlyrehearse at a time the orchestra could not (but we did man-age that well), and some chorus members and orchestraplayers were rnissing at one time or another. When all is !,said and done, I thought the performance was marvelous. Ido not know ofanother university orchestra anywhere thatcould do as well.

    Counterpoint: Have you had the opportunity toview the DVD made of the Mahler concert? If so,do you feel that it captures the intensity ofthe liveperformance?

    Brusilow: I have not viewed the DVD, nor will Ifor quite awhile. Actually, I never listen to any ofmy concefts. It is too nerve-wracking. Don't mistakerne; it is just that I am nevel pleased completelywith my perfonnance and need time away frorn thelistening to gain a proper perspective of what I havedone. I have always been this way with all n-ryrecordings.

    Counterpoint: Which experience in your career ismost mernorable to you?

    Brusilow: The most mernorable expetience wouldbe having to perfolm the Brahms Violin Concerto assoloist with Eugene Olmandy and the PhiladelphiaOrchestra on thirty minutes notice.

    1\pounterpoint: You have had the opporlunity to' -/work with many famous composers and conductot's.Tell us a lesson or two you learrred from them thatremains with you today.

    Brusilow: From George Szell, "Music is not amathematical equation. Don't be picky." From Igor'Stravinsky, "Please conduct my music the way Iwrote it." From Sir Thomas Beecham "Play it mygood man," and from Eugene Ormandy "If you playin rny orchestra, you are the best," and "Let theorchestra p1ay."

    According to the critics..."Brilliantly orchestrated...the work is notablefor its energy, its sense of movement and theskill with which it brings disparate elementsinto harmony. Although it uses some moderntechniques, the effect is...extremely audiencefriendly. Audiences are likely, in returry tobecome McTee-friendly."

    "The result was a well-crafted, attractive andathletic synthesis that provided ample opportu-nity for the orchestra to shine, including anaudacious extended contrabassoon solo in thefirst movement, a throaty elegy for the stringsin the second and a boisterous, Bernsteinian jazzblowout in the finale, which the audiencerewarded enthusiastically. "

    Steve SmithThe Washingtott Post

    "The program's centerpiece was Ms. McTee'swork, a four-movement tour of dance formsthrough which philosophically broader mate-rials are woven.... Ms. McTee's sense of organ-ization kept the work from becoming a pas-tiche: as diverse as its ideas were, theyseemed to unfold naturally within an orches-tra fabric that used the ensemble's full coloris-tic range."

    Amusician with more than amplebusiness sense and entrepreneurial spirit,Robert "Bob" Lawrence is breaking themusic education mold.

    Trained as a classical pianist,Lawrence eamed his bachelor's degreefrom St. Ambrose University inDavenport, Iowa. However, the College ofMusic jazz program lured him to LINTwhere he earned a master's degree inmusic education in 1988 and a Ph.D. in200r.

    Now in its lOth year, The DallasSchool of Music seryes over 600 clientele,including special needs students, and thatsuccess is spreading. Lawrence has recent-ly launched an online music educationcompany, named MusickEd.com, which

    Froehlich, revealed tohim a void of "profes-sionally organized music education out-side the traditional academic environ-ments." Lawrence said that he "felt thatmusic education could be structured as afor-profit profession and experience thesame professional, personal, and econom-ic rewards of other disciplines."

    And so the seed was planted; heimmediately began to prepare a businessplan. In 1992, jusf a year after earning hisPh.D., Lawrence opened the doors to TheDallas School of Music, Inc.

Verbatim, thephilosophy states that "the primary objec-tive ofeducation regardless ofstudent age
