Hawkeye Lunch & Learn: Beyond the Stage: Building Community Through Music

You are invited to the upcoming Hawkeye Lunch & Learn lecture titled Beyond the Stage: Building Community Through Music, presented by David Gier, Director of the School of Music and Erich Funke Professor. This lecture is free and open to the public, however, an RSVP is encouraged.

RSVP by clicking on the "I'm Interested" button on the event page, and following the login instructions. Friends and Alumni will be prompted to create an account the first time they register for a University of Iowa event. Please contact if you encounter any technical issues. Attendees are invited to bring their lunch, and drinks and desserts will be provided.

Voxman Music Building is a platform for connecting University of Iowa musicians with Iowa audiences, but did you know the impact goes far beyond the stage? The University of Iowa School of Music enhances the community in many ways, from the hundreds of world-class, free performances and events throughout the year, to the economic impact of bringing thousands of audience members to the Iowa City area. Educational workshops benefit schools throughout Iowa and beyond, and programs such as the UI String Quartet Residency Program and Arts Share take students and faculty across the entire State of Iowa to engage with audiences outside of Iowa City.

This lecture is sponsored by the University of Iowa Provost's Office of Outreach & Engagement. To view upcoming lectures in the Hawkeye Lunch & Learn lecture series visit Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa sponsored events.

Dave Gier is an engaging speaker and an excellent ambassador for the School of Music and the University of Iowa! I was inspired by his talk to attend more music events. We’re so lucky to live in this community.
