Alexander String Quartet 2

Mondavi Center The Complete Shostakovich String Quartets - Year Two Shostakovich Quartet No. 9 Shostakovich Quartet No. 10 Shostakovich Quartet No. 11 Dmitri Shostakovich The musical career of Dmitri Shostakovich (1906–1975) mirrored exactly the rise and history of the Soviet Union from 1917 to 1975. He entered the Petrograd Conservatory at the very end of the Tsarist era; he witnessed the Revolution and began his career during Lenin’s rule; he was nearly purged twice by Stalin; he flourished under Khrushchev and died while Brezhnev was in power. Shostakovich was a survivor and a great composer, and his fear and self-loathing, his courage and experience found their way into his music. As such, Shostakovich is not just the most important composer of string quartets and symphonies from the 1920s to the 1970s; even more, he and his music stand as witnesses to the rise and failures of the Soviet Union, one of the defining events of the 20th century.

Applied Statistics for Translational Researchers Seminar Series: Get funded or published — Writing statistical sections for grants and papers

Registration link for this event live until November 20, 2019. Speaker: Daniel Tancredi Ph.D. Grant proposals typically require a statistical analysis section and a power and sample size justification section.

In this seminar, we will first detail the information necessary to include in statistical analysis and sample size justification sections of grant proposals. Building on this discussion, we will provide guidance on writing statistical methods sections for scientific manuscripts with examples. Finally, we will explain what information to present and how in reporting results of statistical tests in scientific papers.

Summer Abroad Spain, "Three Cultures of Medieval Spain" (Info Session)

Colleges, Schools, Research Centers and Library The blending of Christian, Jewish, and Muslim peoples in Medieval Spain offers a prime example of multiculturalism, mostly absent in the rest of Europe of the day.

The all-pervasive cultural exchanges among these three societies over eight centuries profoundly shaped Spain´s identity: its language, urban geography, architecture, aesthetics, literature, and daily habits. This program will introduce students to the legacy of this period by visits to Salamanca, Segovia, Toledo, Córdoba, Sevilla, Cádiz, and Granada. Students will draw parallels with today's world as informed by their study of the Iberian experience. Come learn more about the program and meet the instructor! Campus Location: International Center.

Joey Alexander Trio

Mondavi Center Joey Alexander’s first appearance at the Mondavi Center introduced local audiences to an artist wise beyond his years, yet still fully enmeshed in the wonder of creative discovery. Born in 2003 in Bali, Alexander moved to New York City in 2014, where he has experienced one of the most ascendant careers ever seen in jazz. Jason Olaine, a Grammy-winning producer who serves as director of programming for Jazz at Lincoln Center and has produced all four of Alexander’s albums, says he continues to be impressed by the pianist’s fantastic gift. “Joey is such a huge talent coming out of a young player, however he wants to create and have fun by playing.
