Overtones: Fall 2022

In the latest issue of Overtones magazine, we explore the importance of contemporary music at conservatories, and the role Curtis plays in developing the future of music. Our Q+A focuses on Curtis’s newest, dynamic faculty member, marimbist Ji Su Jung. We evaluate the job market new graduates face in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and celebrate the varied career achievements of our recent graduates. We also share tactics for social media, news about Curtis’s expanding digital footprint, peek into a newly-discovered story behind an artwork gifted to Mary Louise Curtis Bok, and catch up on news from community members. 

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to this issue of Overtones. As Curtis approaches our centenary in 2024, we reflect on our storied history. But we are also looking ahead to the future, building on the momentum of our first hundred years to propel us towards our next century and beyond.

—Ed Gazouleas, Gie and Lisa Liem Artistic Director and Provost
