"Reading Mary Mann Hamilton’s memoir Trials of the Earth (Little, Brown; July 12, 2016) is like opening a lost vault or digging up a time capsule of the American past. Told in the frank yet humble vernacular of the hardscrabble pioneers of the late 19th century and early 20th century, it is the only known first-person account of one woman’s struggles and triumphs taming the Mississippi Delta. It is not only a remarkable story that will resonate with readers of fiction and nonfiction alike, it is also an important historical document; and Mary’s unique voice is a testament to the strength of women during a time in which they had very few individual rights of their own." – Ben Bruton

Regardless of discipline, the growing presence of digital archives has challenged all of us to ask innovative questions about our research and teaching. In the process, they have opened a number of radical challenges and opportunities in the classroom, encouraging faculty and students to incorporate archival materials into their scholarly work.

The SICC is an honor choir which gives high school and community college students the opportunity to rehearse great music with clinicians from around the country, learn valuable singing skills and make friendships that last a lifetime. Every year for the past 13 years, more than 500 students from the tri-state area come to the Hattiesburg campus the last Monday of September. Participants not only experience music making at its finest, but also enjoy and explore the beautiful Hattiesburg campus – some for first time. Many students fall in love with the campus, the abundance of campus activities, and the School of Music.

The Power of Influence includes two of the most famous works in the symphonic repertoire, Robert Schumann’s famous Piano Concerto in A minor and Johannes Brahms’ spectacular Symphony No. 2 in D major. Brahms came under the influence of Schumann beginning in the early 1850s. His relationship with both Robert and Clara Schumann had a significant and long-lasting effect on his musical and personal life. When one hears a concert where Schumann opens the program and Brahms brings it to a close, it is impossible not to hear and feel the powerful relationship between the two.
Conductors: Jay Dean and Ivan del Prado
