Mount Union Community Luncheon Featuring Dr. James Perone to be Held January 19
May 24, 2010
Dr. James Perone, professor of music at Mount Union College, will be the featured speaker to kick off the spring sessions of LINC, the college-community luncheon series featuring Mount Union professors and community members discussing current topics, on Tuesday, January 19 at noon in the East Room of the Hoover-Price Campus Center.
He will present "Music in Context - Context in Music." Perone, a native of Columbus, joined the Mount Union faculty in 1994. He received his bachelor’s degree from Capital University in 1980. He then pursued graduate studies at the State University of New York at Buffalo, where he received his master’s degree in clarinet performance in 1982, his master’s degree in music theory in 1984 and a doctoral degree in music theory in 1988.
LINC (lunch, information, networking and conversation) was conceived to take advantage of the local expertise that exists in Alliance, in light of the College’s exceptional academic reputation.
The sessions are open to the public and will run from noon until 1 p.m. during the third Tuesday of the months of February and March. The February 16 session will feature Dr. Beth Canfield-Simbro, assistant professor of human performance and sport business, who will focus on adolescent risk behaviors by presenting “What Are Those Crazy Kids Up To?” Dr. Peter Schneller, associate professor of education and co-chair of the Department of Education, will discuss “Creativity: Friend or Foe?” on March 16.
Sessions will be chaired by Doug Schwarz, vice president of Alliance Ventures and executive director of the Greater Alliance Foundation, with comments and updates from Dr. Richard F. Giese, president of the College and Harry Paidas, chair of the Department of Communication and assistant to the president for community affairs and special projects.
