Louis Hanzlik's New Chamber Music Research
Hanzlik's latest article publication in the International Trumpet Guild Journal, Fostering Democratic Citizenship: Chamber Music’s Ready-Made Space, Hanzlik explores democratic approaches to teaching and learning in the arts. His dissertation, Fostering Democracy and Citizenship through Chamber Music Coaching from Teachers College, Columbia University, examines chamber music’s unique social and musical attributes, and suggests approaches for a democratically mindful chamber music classroom. In June, Hanzlik served on the planning committee of the OCO’s Orpheus Institute, a Mellon Grant supported committee charged with the goal of expanding the Orpheus Institute’s democratic approach to education beyond the music conservatory, and into Liberal Arts Colleges and Universities around the nation. To represent and promote the Institute, Hanzlik will attend the 2010 International Conference of Fine Arts Deans in October and is a central figure in the administration of the Orpheus Institute at the University of Connecticut.
