STUDENT PERFORMANCE: TIBETAN MONASTIC CHANT
MARLBORO, VERMONT – Marlboro College is pleased to announce a Tibetan Monastic Chant senior Plan performance by Dan Caspe slated for Thursday, May 8 at 3 p.m. in the Whittemore Theater.
The performance will include a presentation of Tibetan monastic chant as done in Gelugpa monasteries in Tibet and in exile. The particular style is from Sera Monastery, located in exile in Bylakuppe, Mysore District, South India.
Some parts of chant will be performed in three note chords. This will be done to remember that the paths of method and wisdom, symbolized by the low and high notes, cannot be separated. The joining of the two paths is represented by the middle note.
The Plan of Concentration is the cornerstone of Marlboro's academic program. It is an in- depth, self-designed exploration of a field or fields of each student's choosing. The Plan culminates in a major independent project involving research, one-to-one study with faculty in tutorials and a three-hour oral examination with Marlboro faculty and an outside examiner who is an expert in the student's field.
This event is free and open to the public.
