Launch of Music Wednesday, a part of the IE Music Initiative

Yesterday, IE Campus Life hosted the first Music Wednesday event at the IE Tower with a performance by the IE Jazz Band – Bossa Nostra.

 

It´s just the beginning of the IE Music initiative:

 

IE Music Initiative

A joint initiative brought to you by the Arts & Humanities Division, Campus Life, IE Foundation and IE’s Talent Department!
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow declared music to be the universal language of mankind, and he was absolutely right about the very nature of this essential art form. We might not always understand each other, regardless of our language or background… Nonetheless, when it comes to music, potential culture barriers are left behind leaving room to mutual understanding.
It is with great pleasure that we share with you the launch of the IE Music Initiative bringing together all of IE -* Students, Alumni, Faculty & Staff*. This joint initiative will bring us closer as a community through music and create a new framework for us to **learn, perform and connect **with other members of our unique community.
Several groups and activities unfold under this initiative, such as the IE Music Club, the IE Jazz Club, the IE Talent Show or “La Universidad a Escena”, among others. An initiative by our community for our community.
What does the IE Music Initiative Offer:
  • Physical Space (IE Music Room) & Instruments – Available to all but prior booking is required!
  • IE Music Network – If interested to join the Music initiative to become part of an existing band or join our Jam Sessions, connect with us here!
  • Integration of Music in Key events
  • A yearly Talent show by IE Staff for IE Staff
  • Regular Music events
And more activities soon…
In the meantime, we would like to invite you to join our “Music Wednesdays” starting February 9th at the IE Tower Launchpad (-4 Floor) between 17:00 to 19:00. We will be kicking off with the IEJazz band lead by Carlos Marquerie along with other colleagues!
