Research Alive Series: 2017-18 events

This public outreach series was developed in 2015 by Prof. Stephen McAdams and composition student Kit Soden. 

Each Research Alive event is given by a member of the School to bring to light their research, amply illustrated with live musical examples, and ending with a small piece performed by the faculty and students to tie it all together. So, our motto is "Bring alive the research with music."
