For alt-pop sensation Sloan Struble, aka “Dayglow,” everything is ‘fair game’ when it comes to making music. The 22-year-oldsinging, songwriting and producing triple threat propelled to virality as a teenager with the release of his debut album “Fuzzybrain” (2018) and has amassed nearly 7.3 million monthly listeners on Spotify since then. Infectious melodies and colorful harmonies seem to pour out of Struble’s (not-so) fuzzy brain and will soon spill onto the Academic Quad in a highly anticipated performance at the university’s Spring Fling concert.

Racial bias and misogyny are endemic in the practice and performance of classical music and have restricted many great talents from making their way into the classical canon. Florence Price (1887–1953) was one such musician whose compositions were celebrated during her lifetime but have since fallen into regrettable obscurity.

For the first time in over a year, all musical ensembles at Tufts University will return to in-person modalities with full participation this semester. Vocalists, winds and brass players, whose participation in ensembles was restricted during the 2020–21 academic year, will be required to wear instrument-specific personal protection equipment; all such PPE will be provided by the Department of Music to any student who wishes to participate in an ensemble or engage in solo practice.
Dear Class of 2021 and the Tufts community,
The Tufts Daily sat down with University President Anthony Monaco to discuss the events of the past year.
To our readers,
Welcome back students, faculty and staff! My name is Megan Szostak, and I am the Editor in Chief of The Tufts Daily this spring. Like those of you returning to campus, I have spent the last several days in arrival quarantine, basking in the final moments of winter break and getting ready to don a pair of blue-light glasses for the Zoom-filled months to come. I would like to use this letter both as a means to formally introduce myself and to inform you of how our paper will be reporting on our community and serving you this semester. Through efforts being made across all of our Editorial, Production and Business departments, we remain committed to producing quality, daily content despite any obstacles that might come our way.
In semesters past, those who have found themselves on the ground floor of the Granoff Music Center will likely have heard the entrancing rhythms of Kiniwe, the African music and dance ensemble of the Tufts music department. Taught and directed by Professor Emmanuel Attah Poku, Kiniwe is a course offered to Tufts students who are interested in learning about and participating in the traditional music, drumming and dancing of Ghana.
While the holiday season is going to look a little different this year, your ability to watch classic holiday films from the safety of your residence prevails. Here's what the Arts & Pop Culture editors have to say about their favorite holiday movies:
“Red’s kinda sus.”
“Storms surge and fires burn, but you don’t hear the call / 'Cause fossil fuels keep paying you, does it weigh on you at all? / Does it weigh on you at all? / Which side are you on now? Which side are you on?”
For Tufts students, October is not only marked by the brilliant foliage of a New England fall, the surge of “polar vortexes” promulgated by the local news and even the mini pumpkins available for purchase at Hodgdon Food-on-the-Run, but also by the revving up of coursework and the dreaded midterm season. Forgoing exam preparation in favor of getting into the autumn spirit is an age-old dilemma, but it doesn’t have to be. Studies have shown that listening to classical music spurs the brain to release dopamine, putting the listener into a heightened emotional state, and thus able to better absorb information.
On Oct. 5, the Tufts Department of Music invited the genre-busting violin-viola duo andPlay to perform alivestreamed concertof contemporary string works by four female composers.
For many ensembles and artists, COVID-19 has immeasurably changed the industry of live performance. Many ensembles have had to adapt; the Handel and Haydn Society (H+H), Boston’s premier historically informed performance (HIP) ensemble, has been forced to reinvent their season of live concerts in accordance with new public health guidelines.
