Professor Richard Hansen, director of bands, has been invited to present a document, “American Musical Culture in a High Tech Society: Advancements or Demise,” for the 20th anniversary Oxford University Round Table of Scholars July 23-28. He will join invited presidents, governors, education ministers, congressmen, businesspeople and scholars from around the world to dialogue on the topic of balancing science and technology culture with arts and humanities.
Hansen, who has taught at St. Cloud State since 1983, also conducts the SCSU Wind Ensemble, which is performing with the Michigan State University Wind Symphony on a CD, “American Connections,” to be released by the Innova label in June.
