Workshops


2013

On Friday, October 18, Dr. Kathy Bullock gave an inspiring presentation to our high school students.
She had everyone in the auditorium singing and dancing in a presentation that wove together musical performance with historical context as she recounted elements of African-American history and the evolution of musical forms and traditions. Dr. Bullock, her sister Dr. Dee (Diane White-Clayton), and her brother-in-law Joe Clayton met with students in Scott Halligan’s chorus course before the event, and the presentation began and ended with our high school chorus students performing on stage with our honored guests. It was a powerful experience for everyone involved. Dr. Bullock’s presentation to Mohawk students was made possible through the generous support of the Mohawk Music Association and MAEC (Mohawk Arts and Education Council).
