The University’s Museum of American Political Life was the place to be on Election Night, Nov. 7. Several hundred students, faculty, staff, administrators, media representatives and people from the community were on hand to watch the returns and celebrate the opening of the exhibition, “The Will of the People? Presidential Campaigns That Made the Nation."


During a visit with students at the University of Hartford in the summer of 1972, Aaron Copland was asked a provocative question: What did he think of the emerging field of electronic music?

“The great drawback of electronic music is that if it is not produced live, it must be put on tape, and tape always sounds the same. It is diversity that keeps music alive,” he said. “My general attitude, however, is to keep an open mind and see what comes along.”
