Lunch will be served near the room on the Meeting Room level. This year we will feature the following topic:
One Tuesday April 12, 2018, with very little fanfare or hype, a triumph occurred that validates much of what our T&L SIG and the Community Anchor Program stands for and strives to achieve. A small group of very talented high school student musicians, located at a Paradise Valley School District facility in northeast Phoenix, performed in real time with the Arizona State University Wind Ensemble in the iconic Gammage auditorium, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
The performance was enabled by LoLa, the performing arts software developed by the international R&E networking community and delivered over the Sun Corridor network, the R&E network serving Arizona. Some would argue this event represents advanced networking, advanced applications, and cross-sector collaboration at its absolute best (ex. Paradise Valley students/staff helped bring ASU’s first LoLa node online!) All three elements converged that night to enable an incredibly impactful educational opportunity that would not have been possible without all of us bringing forth our diverse strengths and working together as a community.
Congratulations to Michael Sherman from Sun Corridor, Jeff Billings from Paradise Valley, and Jason Caslor, Associate Director of Bands and Orchestras at Arizona State University and everyone else who contributed over the last few months to making last night a great success.
This year’s T&L SIG will feature our guest speakers Jason Caslor, Associate Director of Bands and Orchestra, Arizona State University and Jeff Billings, Paradise School District, Phoenix, AZ. Jeff and Jason will bring this event to life as well as describe how it came to be.
To prepare for the discussion, we highly recommend taking a few minutes to watch the performance "YouTubeClassical Arizona PBS -- ASU Wind Ensemble performs Susato: Selections from "The Danserye"
We hope you can join us to learn more about this exciting and ground-breaking event and learn how your institution can get involved!
