BAM forum meets every Friday afternoon, and provides programs on and discussion of the role of music across disciplines. This is achieved through guest speakers, interdisciplinary discussions, informal “jam” sessions, field trips, and student presentations. Past speakers include former German Ambassador and Consul General Dr. Volker Anding, who spoke of his diplomatic career and the significance of playing the cello to his life and Dr. Bertha Amisi of Nova Southeastern University, who discussed the role of music in conflict resolution in Africa. Interdisciplinary discussions explore various music-centered topics such as music and disabilities and music and public policy.
