TWU professor gains inspiration for flute concert from class


DENTON — 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, call (940) 898-2500.

In researching 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 ideas.

“I’m 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 semester.
