Go Forth

May 23, 2017

Seven hundred graduates took part in commencement exercises during a sunny morning on Monday, May 22. Darren Walker, president of the Ford Foundation, was the speaker for the college’s 184th commencement ceremony. The Class of 2017, which included graduates of the College of Arts and Sciences and Oberlin Conservatory, listened as Walker encouraged them to change the tone of the public discourse and seek to empathize with others. “Our differences have always been a part of the American experiment for better or worse. We must make an effort to accept and understand that difference, not ignore it.”

Charles McGuire Launches Online Tool

May 30, 2017

Charles McGuire, professor of musicology, has launched the Musical Festivals Database (MFD), a online tool that allows users explore and research the performance history of British Musical Festivals between 1695-1940. The programming and implementation of the database musicalfestivals.org is a collaboration between the Oberlin College Library, Oberlin College and Conservatory, the Five Colleges of Ohio, the Mellon Foundation, and Duke University’s Digital Scholarship Services. Due to the efforts of Oberlin and Duke student research assistants, one can use the MFD to search more than 500 festivals online, find out when and where a singer, instrumentalist, or conductor worked in Great Britain, and what was performed. The database is part of McGuire’s long-standing project to research musical festivals and the history of performance in order to implement within the Oberlin classroom a broader discussion of what music history was and is.
