The jewel at McGill is the new music building, a 7-floor glass and concrete building connected to old Strathcona Hall, kick-started by a $20 million gift from real estate magnate and alumnus Seymour Schulich, inspired when fellow developer and Toronto Symphony director Joe Sorbora told him: "Music is what makes us human." The worlds of neuroscience, law, digital technology, psychology, acoustics and physical fitness are mingling with musical theory and performance, making it a global leader in conservatory research.
Sandy Pearlman was known for producing records by Blue Oyster Cult and The Clash before he became the Schulich Music School's distinguished visiting scholar. But he's a gonzo academic at heart: At the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1966, he was a Woodrow Wilson Fellow in the History of Ideas. He completed graduate work at Brandeis and was a New School Fellow in Sociology and Anthropology. He now finds himself in his element at McGill.
