Intercultural Residency Series - Virtual Residencies
In Spring of 2014, students of Professor Judith Eissenberg’s Intro to World Music class participated in a video-conferencing encounter with four individuals from the Q’eros of the Peruvian Andes. The encounter took place in Cusco, Peru and in room 212, Slosberg Music Center, with ethnomusicologist Dr. Holly Wissler as guide and instructor. With music as the window into history and culture, the experience was deep and memorable for the students and the Q’eros, who traveled down from their homes high in the Andes to take part. MUUS hopes to continue these encounters. Please see the video below, and if you would like to support other such cross-cultural exchanges, please contact MUUS director Judith Eissenberg.
