Lyndon State College offers new Performing Arts Management degree

first_imgLyndon State College is announcing a new degree. The Bachelor of Science in Performing Arts Management will first be offered in the fall of 2010. Students majoring in Arts Management can select among three concentrations: artist management, venue management and theater operations management.The Performing Arts Management degree will prepare students to serve in administrative, managerial and leadership positions in an area related to music and performing arts. Core courses include Financial Accounting, Introduction to Business, Introduction to Business Software, Principles of Management, Principles of Marketing, Business Ethics, Fiscal Management, Event Management and Promotion, Strategic Media Communication and Introduction to Media Communication. All students will also complete Lyndon’s General Education requirements, which are specifically designed and intended to provide a basis of liberal arts for all Lyndon students.In addition, students must meet the requirements of the career-related internship after participating in courses such as the Music Industry Co-op, Event Management and Promotion, Artist Management and Development, Music Venue Management, Entrepreneurship in the Music Industry, House and Box Office Management and Theatre Operations Management Techniques. All of these courses are designed to integrate real-world experience with classroom instruction.Two current faculty members will be central in this new program: Britt Moore and Joe Gittleman. Both came to Lyndon following extensive experience in the industry. Moore worked in California as a sound engineer, and Gittleman is the founder and member of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, a successful Boston-based band founded in 1983.As with most Lyndon courses, Arts Management students will “do” what they study – they will not be isolated in the classroom, but will be exposed to the demands of an actual work environment. The motto of the Music & Performing Arts and Arts Management departments is “Be early, work hard, say thanks.”Upon graduation, students will be prepared to enter a career with a balance of knowledge in a field associated with music business or theater arts management. There has been a growing trend over the years of students opting for professional courses in their college education. At this time, 65% of Lyndon students are enrolled in such programs.Source: Lyndon State College 3.29.2010last_img read more


China sends team to Hong Kong for widespread coronavirus testing

first_imgSeven Chinese health officials arrived in Hong Kong on Sunday, the first members of a 60-person team that will carry out widespread COVID-19 testing in the territory as it races to halt a third wave of illness.The initiative marks the first time mainland health officials have assisted Hong Kong in its battle to control the epidemic.The city has reported around 3,500 coronavirus cases and 34 deaths since January, far lower than many other global metropolitan centers. But the daily number of new infections has been in three digits for the past 12 days. Members of the testing team, coordinated by the Chinese government, are mostly from public hospitals in Guangdong province, China’s National Health Commission said.A group of local Hong Kong councilors said on Sunday that some local residents fear China may use their presence as an opportunity to collect DNA samples for surveillance purposes.The territory’s government denied the claims, saying virus testing would only be conducted in the city and samples would not be transported to the mainland.In June, to widespread criticism in the West, Beijing imposed a security law on the territory to tackle what China defines as secession, subversion and collusion with foreign forces, punishable by up to life in prison.Hong Kong’s autonomy was guaranteed under a “one country, two systems” formula when Britain returned the city to Chinese control in 1997.Hong Kong government leader Carrie Lam said on Saturday it had asked for help from Beijing due to the resurgence in cases. She said the government was studying whether everyone in Hong Kong could be tested, local broadcaster RTHK reported.Following a surge in locally transmitted coronavirus cases in July, the territory introduced curbs including restricting gatherings to two people and mandating face masks in all outdoor public spaces.Topics :last_img read more

NFL training camp 2019: AFC South preview

first_imgTeam on the riseJacksonville JaguarsCalling the Jaguars a team on the rise two seasons after they made the AFC championship feels wrong, but there is no denying it’s right. There”s no denying the NFL is a quarterback-driven league, and it appears Jacksonville finally has a quarterback. Nick Foles signed four-year, $88 million deal with the team this offseason and will replace much-maligned Blake Bortles. Simply having a QB who can protect the ball will go a long way for the team’s defense and for getting Leonard Fournette some room to run.Team on the declineHouston TexansThere are several ways the Texans are on the rise. They added a couple of offensive linemen early in the draft, which should help the team protect quarterback Deshaun Watson. The young QB has another year under his belt, and younger defenders like Justin Reid should be primed to improve this season.But the team is in the middle of a contract disagreement with Jadeveon Clowney that might lead to a holdout. The offensive linemen the team drafted are a ways away from being great, plus the team let shutdown cornerback Tyrann Mathieu go for virtually nothing and they’ll go through the 2019 season without a general manager after firing Brian Gaine after one year running the team.Oh yeah, and Bill O’Brien still has issues with simple clock and game management. That’s a team that could easily decline.Rookies to watchJosh Allen, LB, Jaguars: As if the Jaguars didn’t already have enough pass-rushing talent, the Raiders and Giants passed on Allen who might have been the best player in college football with Kentucky last year. He’s going to make an already scary front seven for the Jaguars even more terrifying. Kahale Warring, TE, Texans: A former water polo player who really came into his own at San Diego State last year, Warring gives Watson a tight end who can finally scare a defense with his pass-catching and could be an intriguing part of the offense for the next several years.Player spotlightDarius Leonard Leonard completely changed the feel of the Colts defense as a rookie in 2018. He finished the season with 163 tackles, four forced fumbles and two interceptions and turned Indianapolis’ defense from one to be laughed at into one to be cautious about. His performance in 2019 could go a long way toward continuing to make the team’s defense better — or letting it regress back to where it was before. If he is what he was last year, then the Colts should continue to get better. If he’s not, then Andrew Luck will be pressing again on offense.Key injuriesAndrew Luck, calf: The Colts quarterback, who’ll be 30 in September, was forced to miss all of the team’s offseason workouts because of a lingering calf injury, but the team doesn’t seem too concerned about his long-term outlook. However, the Colts weren’t concerned about his shoulder either when he missed all of 2017. This could be something of concern — or it might not be. It’s just another part of the long-running concerns about Luck’s health that always seem to plague his career. NFL training camp 2019: AFC North preview All that leads to speculation that this division is up for grabs, and while there may not be a 13-win team in it in 2019, there may not be a team worse than .500 when all is said and done.Here’s the outlook for the AFC South heading into training camp: Related Newscenter_img NFL training camp 2019: AFC East preview The Texans won AFC South last season, but this division might be as competitive as it has been in a long time in 2019.Andrew Luck is back to his old self, the Jaguars added a quarterback who can throw the ball and the Titans seemed to find an identity in the running game last year.last_img read more
