Join us for two webinar presentations in one 60-minute session!
Date: Sunday, January 9, 2022
Time: 4-5pm Eastern (1-2pm Pacific)
1. Meet Me at the Metz, presented by Lynnli Wang
Lynnli will share the journey of her first 1.5 years as the first Associate Instructor of Carillon at the newly renovated Metz Carillon at Indiana University. She has collaborated with different members of the community across the campus and city of Bloomington, and will be sharing success stories, tips and tricks, and other fun tidbits from her experience working with students, musicians, and more.
Lynnli Wang is the current University Carillonneur and Associate Instructor of Carillon at Indiana University, where she plays both the Metz Carillon and also the Music Addition Carillon, and teaches a studio of student carillonneurs. Her carillon journey started at Yale, where she studied with Ellen Dickinson, and she passed her Carillonneur membership exam in 2014. Besides making beautiful bell music for her community, Lynnli loves bringing people together to collaborate on the carillon - she co-authored a children's book on the carillon, Rosie Meets the Carillon; commissioned new works for carillon plus other instruments; and has even worked with various cultural centers and athletic teams to highlight the carillon and music of underrepresented populations.
2. Creating Inclusive Engagement in Campus: Carillon Student Perspective, presented by Dr. Hyo Jin ("Jenna") Moon
In this workshop, Jenna will address the important role of student carillonists as valued contributors to the diverse campus community and strategic approaches to exercise meaningful engagement with all students, faculty, and staff who encounter carillon music on the campus. Jenna shares her experiences in the University of Michigan Carillon Studio as a former student of Associate Professor Tiffany Ng, which transformed her perspective on the carillon, sacred music, and the power and value of inclusive music making. She found campus carillons fascinating for their impact on the soundscapes that can cultivate more vibrant and inclusive university environments to serve various groups of student body, faculty, and staff in our community. She will share her weekly noon recitals and a collaborative virtual concert with grants from the campus organization that highlighted culturally and socially underrepresented populations, such as African American, Latinx, Native American, Asian, and women of color. She will share her strategies and the challenges of representing certain groups and current demographics of studio students and carillon composers. She will conclude with providing useful publicity and social impact resources.
Dr. Hyo Jin (“Jenna”) Moon received her M.M. and D.M.A. in sacred music and organ performance from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. She studied carillon with Dr. Tiffany Ng and arrangement with Dr. Pamela Ruiter-Feenstra. She is a weekly recitalist at the Charles Baird and Lurie carillon at the U-M and a research assistant at the Music of the United States of America. Her published carillon works include “Parang-Sae Toccata” (2020) and “Sae Ta Ryung Variations” (2020) which were introduced and performed at the 2021 virtual congress of the Guild of Carillonneurs in North America. In addition to her successful exam recordings, her bilingual “FAQ: A Perspective for Korean Americans” shares carillon history and advances knowledges about Korean-American carillon composers and accessible to major Korean-American metropolitan populations (https://wp.me/p7VjVq-bj).
