Call to Participate in CRW Pop-Up Concerts

May 11, 2016

Conservatory Communications Staff

In celebration of the conservatory’s 150th anniversary, all students, faculty, staff, and alumni are invited to participate in campus-wide pop-up concerts happening throughout Commencement/Reunion Weekend (CRW).

A pop-up concert is a brief, informal, and spontaneous sharing of music with others who happen to be in the vicinity at the time. There are no microphones or amps and no minimum performance times. Performers can play whatever instrument they choose, be it a guitar, saxophone, violin, drum, or one of four pianos that will be located in the bandstand, the sidewalk between Bibbins Hall and the Conservatory Annex, outside of Mudd Library, and on the balcony of the Hotel at Oberlin. Stands and folding chairs will be available for sign-out from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. throughout the weekend in Conservatory Central 32.

With nearly 4,000 visitors in Oberlin during CRW, there is a potential audience on every corner, so grab your instrument and your friends and get ready to share your musical talent! Email Thea Boyd at tboyd@oberlin.edu for more information.

It’s Saturday night in March and there’s a pulsating glow spilling from the windows of the Root Room in Carnegie Building. Inside, rows of spectators line the perimeter of a long narrow stage. Oberlin’s most anticipated fashion show begins as cheers swell when models, draped in creative attire, take their turn down the walk. This is a signature event during Black History Month. It also serves as inspiration for this week’s photo series.

Who is Louise Zeitlin?

January 28, 2022

Louise Zeitlin started taking violin lessons when she was 5 years old. She can still see the rows of cookies and sweets that welcomed students and guests after each holiday concert. The experience left a lasting impression. Now, as a teacher of viola and director of the Conservatory’s Community Music School, her students are leaving lasting impressions on her. And of course treats after recitals are a must. Learn more about Zeitlin in this installment of Who Am I?
