The UO is honoring the life and work of music professor and former dean of the School of Music and Dance Anne Dhu McLucas, who died Sept. 8. Plans are proceeding on the second of a two-part symposium on “Oral Traditions, Old and New” Oct. 19 and 20.
The October portion of the symposium will be dedicated to McLucas, with musicians and scholars from across the U.S. and abroad presenting their work in her memory. The theme of the symposium was chosen to honor her 2010 monograph, the “The Musical Ear: Oral Tradition in the USA.”
A memorial service will be held at 4 pm Saturday, Oct. 20, in Beall Concert Hall, 961 E. 18th Ave., on campus. The service is open to the public. See music.uoregon.edu for more information on the symposium and memorial.
