Students and community members alike can discover the similarities of jazz and life tonight along with AP music theory and AP seminar students during the first part of the Fine Arts Lecture Series. The presentation will be at 7 p.m. in the Lecture Hall.

This year marks the second year of the Fine Arts Lecture Series, and students will have the opportunity to hear Dr. Teresa Reed speak. Reed is a professor of music at the University of Tulsa and is also the Associate Dean of the College of the Arts and Sciences. She is also the chief reader for AP seminar and formerly the chief reader for AP music theory. She spent the school day before her lecture speaking to the AP music theory and AP Capstone classes.

“The Fine Arts Lecture Series was started last year by Mr. Chris Mason as a part of the AP Arts Grant Cultural Enrichment event,” AP music theory teacher Dr. Terry Eder said.  “It is designed to present outstanding experts in the field of music each year on various topics in music. Last year it was about Beethoven; this year it is about jazz.”

Reed received a Ph.D. in music history, music theory, and African American studies from Indiana University. She is also the author of award winning books, The Holy Profane: Religion in Black Popular Music and The Jazz Life of Dr. Billy Taylor. In tonight’s lecture, Reed will be “exploring the many creative possibilities that jazz and life have in common.”
