Due to the impending snowstorm, the university closed at 11 a.m. Monday (Jan. 26)
for students, faculty and non-essential staff. All classes scheduled to start after
11 a.m. Monday are canceled. While the residence halls will remain open with limited
services, residential students are strongly advised to return home Monday if they
are safely able to do so. With blizzard-like conditions expected as the storm intensifies
late Monday through Tuesday, movement around campus to Connecticut Hall and other
locations will be difficult. The university will remain closed Tuesday during the
height of the storm. Wednesday's status will be announced once the extent of the cleanup
after the storm is known.
The Creative Music Orchestra was founded in the fall semester of 1995 by its director,
Dr. David Chevan. Its purpose is to explore and perform works and improvisations
that represent old and new traditions of creative music making. These works range
from renditions of traditional folk music to spontaneous fully-improvised pieces.
The music sources for these pieces span the globe, and the ensemble has explored music
from a wide range of cultures and societies.
Rehearsals are Tuesday nights from 7:35-10:05 p.m. in Earl Hall 118. Contact Dr. David Chevan (203-392-6630) for further information.
