New Lecture Series partnerships with University of Michigan and Eastman, IPM on the road to the American Musicological Society conference
We are proud to announce that the IPM will work with the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, as well as with the musicology and music theory departments at Eastman, as part of our 2015-16 Lecture Series. These lectures will then be added to our Virtual Conference. The UR IPM will also be at the annual conference of the American Musicological Society once more this year. The UR IPM will host the AMS Dance, held this year at the Hard Rock Cafe in Louisville, Kentucky.

During the psychedelic years of the late 1960s, bands such as the Beatles, the Stones, and the Beach Boys began to expand the stylistic boundaries of rock music, drawing in classical music, electronic sounds and effects, jazz influences, and non-western styles. In the 1970s, several groups built on this music and focused especially on the blending of classical music with rock. Mostly British groups, their style was dubbed "progressive rock."
The spring's UR IPM concert celebrates the music of these classic "prog" groups, with faculty and students of the College Music Department backed by members of Going for the One. The concert will feature music by Yes, Genesis, ELP, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and others. Click here for more information on that event.
The University of Rochester offers thirty one courses in popular music, ranging from American Musical Theater to Sound Design.
