UO Influence on the Evolution of Music in Lane County

Presentations by UO Music Department Interns Alexis Henson and Miles Mansfield

The University of Oregon has a long history of providing musical entertainment for the student body and community, and has had a strong impact on the trends in music in Lane County.

Alexis Henson’s presentation will focus on a review of the evolution of musical influence on the University of Oregon campus from 1930 to 1960. A musical perspective in which we can watch the change of musical and social trends of the student body and the community.

Miles Mansfield’s presentation will utilize historical photographs as well as an interview with the UO’s Electronic/Sound/Lighting/Media Engineer, to focus on the UO’s well known reputation for consistently producing memorable shows by promoting local musicians and bands, showcasing highly talented students at the music school, student group success with musical productions, as well as bringing in both local and national acts to their stages.
