A Musical Tribute to Thanksgiving

On Monday, November 21, composer and Ruth Marshall Magill Professor of Music Curt Cacioppo and his friend, pianist Emanuele Arciuli, presented a colloquium celebrating Native American art and music.  The colloquium, which spanned both past and present musical traditions, was a Thanksgiving tribute to the first peoples of North America. Art from the Pueblo and Anasazi cultures were presented alongside traditional Native American songs.
