The American Musicological Society held its Annual Meeting in Quebec City November 1–4. Several of our grad students and faculty were in attendance and, in between sessions, had time to catch up with alumni and friends of the Department of Music. Many thanks to grad students Brandi Neal and Chris Ruth, and Professor Mary Lewis for the many excellent photos.

Please join us as we continue to serenade Giant Eagle Market District shoppers this Saturday, November 10. Pitt Students Kerrith Livengood, Ben Harris, Amanda Adametz, and Callah Antonetti will perform at Giant Eagle in the South Hills Village from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. If the South Hills is too far away or just a skosh too early, check out Pitt students Joe Liu and Kristen Pueschel, and Pitt Alumni Amy Feinstein and (yours truly) Jennifer Sternick at the Shadyside Market District between 1 p.m.
University of Pittsburgh students and alumni will perform at Giant Eagle Market District stores during all Saturdays throughout November. Giant Eagle has two Market District stores, one located at 5550 Centre Ave. in Shadyside, and a second in the South Hills Village Square at 7000 Oxford Drive, Bethel Park.

Answering the perennial question of what to do when you have just completed a double major in music and applied mathematics and are preparing to start graduate studies in piano performance at Mannes College the New School for Music, Andrej Savol (07) has taken up painting. Andrej was kind enough to send these photos of his first paintings (which he actually made on the backs of our old posters for the marquee at Bellefield Hall).
