A life of academic curiosity that was nurtured at North Central College continues for Charlotte Roederer '65. A math and music major as an undergraduate, Roederer has shifted from a law career back to research she started more than 30 years ago after earning a doctorate in music history from Yale University. "I have the opportunity to 'front burner' the research I started as an academic and kept warm all these years," she says.
Ramona Wis, Mimi Rolland Professor in the Fine Arts, professor and chair of music, was the guest director of the East Tennessee Vocal Association 2010 Honors Women’s Choir in Oak Ridge, Tenn., Nov. 18-20. Mounting an ambitious and varied program of women’s chorus repertoire, Wis and the select 120-voice high school ensemble worked for three days as part of the annual festival that brings guest conductors from around the country to work with mixed, men’s and women’s auditioned ensembles and present a public performance as the culminating event.
