Welcome to ETHEL’s Wide World of Music as Thought! Based on our many engagements with education
across cultures and disciplines – especially our decade as Ensemble-In-Residence at Denison
University – we have distilled some of our most salient, successful, and tested outcomes, and present
them, here, as a resource to anyone interested in the development and impact of such activity.
Music is a universal human practice, the components of which can illuminate and lend coherence to
partnered materials, inspiring learning, creativity and cooperation. As highly trained and expert
practitioners of the Western European and American musical traditions, ETHEL is exceptionally adept at
perceiving relationships between artistic and academic disciplines. As people of broad experience and
compassionate nature, we are widely recognized for building bridges between communities through
music and the skills necessary to share it.
Here, you will find the urgent testimonials of the members of ETHEL, as well as those of the faculty,
students and administration of Denison University, speaking to the purpose, process, design and
delivery of this collaborative work and its deep value to any community both on- and off-campus.
Thank you for joining us!!
