CU Winds Director, Cynthia Johnston Turner, has been selected by Google to be a “Glass Explorer.” (Please see: http://www.google.com/glass/start/) We plan on using Glass in concerts to live stream what the conductor and performer is seeing to the audience as well as developing applications for embedding scores and teaching conducting. Undergraduate CU Winds member and music major, Tyler Ehrlich and Cornell Information Technologies are partners in the project. If you would like to follow along with our research and experiences with Glass, follow our blog at https://blogs.cornell.edu/cuwindsglass. We are already crowd-sourcing ideas for the Glass in research and performance. Add your voice!
The CU Wind Symphony and associated student organization CU Winds unite student musicians dedicated to the study and performance of emerging and traditional wind repertoire. We explore music making as a vehicle for cross-cultural exchange and collaboration, and in doing so support Cornell's core values of public engagement and global awareness.
