Music for the Small and Tall - Playing with Bells

Join the fun with Music for the Small and Tall's Holiday Session: Playing with Bells. Six week session. Check website for times and additional information.

Music for the Small and Tall is a program for young children, ages 6 months to 5 years, based on the Orff Schulwerk approach to teaching music. In this approach, children make music with activities that are enjoyable and natural for them such us simple songs, rhythms, and movements. Kids play on pitched and non-pitched percussion instruments that are colorful, kid-friendly and safe. During the learning process children improve their concentration, coordination, sensitivity to rhythm and tone, singing, and playing instruments. The participation and modeling of parents and teacher is essential to a child's music growth. Music can be one of the most wonderful and strong forms of communication that parents and their child can experience together.

USU Exhibit: Mary Claire Becker and Amanda Lee

Marie Claire Becker’s research explores the fetishization of landscape as “other” in industrialized cultures, particularly in the United States, through artworks that rearrange and re-contextualize human-made depictions of Nature. In her work, botanical designs rooted in the domestic are exaggerated to the point of parody verging on oversaturated kitsch. By highlighting visions of Nature that are embedded in American culture, she aims to emphasize their artificiality. Her work investigates and responds to man-made nature as a way to further understand her ecological identity and her responsibility as a post-digital human.

Opening receptions October 8th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, at the Tippetts & Eccles Galleries.

12:00 PM USU Forestry Webinar about Woody Vegetation

Utah State University presents its Learn at Lunch Webinar Series:

  • USU Forestry Webinar about Vegetation

Federal and state agencies across Utah and the Great Basin have been actively treating pinyon and juniper woodlands to improve wildlife habitat, reduce fuel loads, and achieve watershed objectives. Increasingly these activities have been questioned by stakeholder groups and citizens who are concerned about the unintended consequences of such treatments. In this webinar, we’ll address some of the recent criticisms of pinyon-juniper treatment, sharing results of research on woody vegetation removal as well as identifying questions that still need to be answered through research and monitoring.

Register online.
