gains inspiration for flute concert from class
The adaptation of a classroom course to the computer inspired
the upcoming flute concert by Dr. Pamela Youngblood, an associate
professor of music at Texas Woman’s University. The
result is a multimedia event that will highlight the changing
portrayal of women in music, culture and the media.
The concert will
take place at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 19, in the Margo Jones
Performance Hall, located at Oakland and Sawyer streets on
TWU’s Denton campus. Admission is free. For more information,

ways to make “Women in Music,” a course taught
in TWU classrooms since 1999, work as an online course, Dr.
Youngblood said she was struck by the ways women portrayed
themselves in the early 1900s. Those images and others will
be projected onto a screen as Dr. Youngblood discusses and
performs works by Lili Boulanger, Undine Smith Moore, Jennifer
Fowler, Cecilia McDowall and more. She will be accompanied
by pianist Gabriel Bita and Delta Holl on cello.
Planning a concert
with multimedia presentations was a new venture for Dr. Youngblood,
who worked closely with Jay Kay, technical director for the
Margo Jones Performance Hall, on technical as well as creative
excited,” she said. “I felt inspired, both by
this concert and the online ‘Women in Music’ course.
The accomplishments of women in music are underrated and underreported,
and it was a challenge to figure out how to show my enthusiasm
for the subject to students who weren’t going to meet
me (in the online course).”
The course was
offered online for the first time in TWU’s Summer I
session this year, and it filled up immediately, Dr. Youngblood
said. It will be offered online again during the spring 2007
