COLLAGE: Bernstein at 100
September 8, 2018
Collage: Bernstein at 100 kicks off the new academic year for the UNCG School of Music in spectacular fashion with our 11th annual performance on September 8. Leonard Bernstein has been hailed as one of the most prodigiously talented and successful American musicians and his impact on music and culture during the 20th century cannot be overstated. From compositions like West Side Story, to his work as music director of the New York Philharmonic, to his historic performance at the fall of the Berlin Wall, Bernstein touched nearly every aspect of life worldwide. This performance will pay tribute to his tremendous legacy.
Collage is captivating and totally unique, featuring an incredible range of performers presenting one riveting work after another. Over 300 students from the School will perform on the concert, along with many of our world-class faculty members, making this our most spectacular event of the year. With performances taking place all around the auditorium and special lighting effects, it’s a non-stop evening of amazing performances you won’t want to miss!
Collage is always completely sold out, so mark your calendar and plan to get your tickets in advance (all seating is reserved).
Dr. Raleigh Bailey, founding director of the Center for New North Carolinians at UNC Greensboro, and current director Dr. Holly Sienkiewicz discuss the CNNC's fascinating history and continuing impact in North Carolina. Project Director Khouan Rodriguez explains the center's AmeriCorps ACCESS project.
Topics include CNNC efforts to:
- provide culturally and linguistically appropriate services to refugee and immigrant communities in North Carolina
- provide professional training to interpreters across the state
- provide cross-cultural health services to immigrants in Guilford County
- facilitate research related to newcomer populations
- facilitate a two-way education process between populations served and students and faculty
- fill service gaps
- serve clients from 32 different countries
- serve North Carolina's unique Montagnard population, a legacy of the Vietnam War
The Board of Governors established the CNNC in 2001 to “provide research, training, and evaluation for the state of North Carolina in addressing immigrant issues; collaboration with government and social organizations to enhance responsiveness to immigrant needs; and community support to provide training and workshops.” Since its inception, the center's work has reflected and expanded upon UNC Greensboro's historic commitment to special populations.
The 2017-2018 school year was quite a successful one for UNCG Athletics. Four teams made it to the NCAA Tournament. It started in the fall with women's soccer winning the Southern Conference Tournament. In the winter, men's basketball got over the hump and won the Souther Conference Tournament as well, beating ETSU by 15. The conference title was so big for the school that they ended up on TBS for a live look-in during the NCAA Selection Show. In the early spring, men's golf came from behind to win the Southern Conference Tournament and punch their ticket to Stockton, California. Weeks after men's golf, softball became the fourth and final team to win the Southern Conference and play in the NCAA Tournament.
Numerous All-Conference selections from various teams at UNCG along with Academic All-Conference selections solidified the athletes' drive not just to do well on the field but in the classroom as well.
Take a look back at the year that was for UNCG Athletics in the 2017-2018 school year.
