ZANKEL FALL 2018 EVENTS BOOKLET
Alfred Z. Solomon Community Fund for Children, Youth, & the Arts
Skidmore College received a generous grant from the Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust
in 2011. This endowed fund allows the Department of Music to reach into the community
to make the arts accessible to the next generation of audiences by offering events
for free for students and children of all ages.
A recent live storytelling performance, produced by the renowned nonprofit, The Moth, and hosted by Skidmore’s MDOCs program, empowered and energized a new generation of storytellers at Skidmore College.
Groups of faculty members and students will participate in storytelling workshops, culminating in a StorySLAM event on Sept. 30, which will be recorded for possible broadcast on a future episode of The Moth Radio Hour and The Moth Podcast.
Each year Skidmore shares a lot of news about research, campus life, alumni, you name it. Which homepage stories reached the most eyeballs in 2017?
