Lagrimas to co-chair NYSMTA symposium session

Roger Coda

School of Music Assistant Professor Leonidas Lagrimas will return as an event co-chair at the New York State Music Teachers Association (NYSMTA) Symposium, which will be held virtually on Saturday, Oct. 17.

This will be the second year in a row that Mr. Lagrimas is a co-chair and co-host of the virtual Lighting Talk/Research Poster session. He will serve alongside Nazareth College Associate Professor Jacob Ertl.

The aptly named Lightning Talk session features five-minute mini-session presentations on music and pedagogy-related topics. The Research Poster session displays scholarship, best teaching practices and practical information for music teachers on a wide variety of topics. More information can be found online.

NYSMTA is offering on Zoom a free event designed to allow members to maintain the personal connections for which the association’s in-person gatherings have so well excelled.

In the space of a few hours, attendees will be able to listen to very short presentations on a wide array of topics offered by NYSMTA members, hear the premier performance of an engaging chamber work by the association’s commissioned composer, survey a variety of poster displays, attend the general membership meeting/celebration and participate in a moderated topic-oriented discussion.

Registration for the symposium, which is free and open to all New York state music teachers, can be made online.
