This 90 minute workshop will focus on introducing you to Engineering Village, a sophisticated discovery platform for current and past engineering & computer science literature tracked in databases such as Compendex and INSPEC. Other important engineering resources will also be highlighted. The workshop will cover how to use Engineering Village to find articles and conference papers in your field, track research in particular journals or by specific authors and monitor new research output going forward. We will also show you briefly how what you learn here can be applied to other resources.
Two choirs in one evening! Jean-Sébastien Allaire leads the largest performing ensemble in the university in this popular concert of choral music. The university choir, made up of students, staff and the community, give their all to celebrate the end of the semester. Kathy Kennedy directs the chamber choir in a program for a smaller, more intimate choir, singing repertoire from the Renaissance to the present day. The act of singing is one of the most unifying human abilities – both for the singers and the audience. Listen, breathe, and enjoy.
Jazz improvisation is a skill as individual as each performer as they navigate complex chords and rhythms, styles and their fellow students' input. Gary Schwartz directs these small combos playing a variety of music to show off their growing skills as improvisers and creators. These fresh sounds will inspire you to do as well in your own work, whatever it may be. Step back into the jazz age with Dave Turner and the Concordia Big Band. The closing concert of the semester will send you out with that great brass and reed sound in your ears, some fabulous singers in your mind's eye, and wishing you had brought your dancing shoes. Swing into the Oscar Peterson Concert Hall for an unforgettable evening. Directed by Dave Turner.
