Everyone,

I hope you had a wonderful Spring Break. Now back to business as we close out Spring 2012!!!

1) Summer/Fall Registration begins TODAY, 4/16. If you have any questions or concerns about music classes or being a music major or minor at York College, please contact me ( tzlabinger@york.cuny.edu ) or drop by my office (Academic Core 1B11) on Tuesday, 4/17 @ 2 - 6 p.m.

Many of you have questions about the new major and minor that will go into effect this fall. You can find out the details at:

2) The YORK COLLEGE CREATIVE ENSEMBLE will present and perform as part of York College's 3RD ANNUAL STUDENT RESEARCH DAY on Thursday, 4/19 @ 3:30 p.m. in the Health & Phys Ed Building.

This is your chance to meet some of the musicians in this newly created ensemble that has performed on and off campus and will be featured at the international VISION FESTIVAL XVII this June (FOR MORE INFO: http://www.visionfestival.org/schedule/visionfestival17 ). Students will discuss their experiences and the difference between playing structured arrangements in the York College Big Band vs. free/open improvisations in the Creative Ensemble.
