Alumna Christine Gangelhoff Organizes Caribbean Art Music Symposium
Christine Gangelhoff (DMA, 2002, flute) recently co-organized Puentes Caribeños (Caribbean Bridges), a Symposium of Caribbean Art Music. The Symposium began in 2013, conceived by Christine Gangelhoff at the University of The Bahamas, as the International Symposium on Composers of African and Afro-Caribbean Descent. The third installment of the Symposium was held at the Conservatorio de Música de Puerto Rico (CMPR) in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The CMPR hosted the event as part of its annual Symposium of Music Research, now in its fifth year. For this third Symposium of Art Music, the event adopted its new name, Puentes Caribeños (Caribbean Bridges). The goal of the event’s organizers and participants is to hold it, with its new name, bi-annually at alternating locations throughout the Caribbean.
