Sones de Mexico leads tour of folk music regions, 11/17

The UIC Library is the lead sponsor of a performance by the Sones de Mexico Ensemble on Monday, November 17, at noon, in Student Center East’s Cardinal Room.  The program is a musical geography of Mexico, a tour of folk music regions with live demonstrations by the musicians on authentic folk instruments.

Sones de México Ensemble is a non-profit music organization and a sextet of talented musicians with a mission to promote greater appreciation of Mexican folk and traditional music and culture through innovative performance, education, and dissemination.

The lecture/music performance is free to the public.  Several campus units are co-sponsors with the Library including the Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of Latinos, the Rafael Cintrón Ortiz Latino Cultural Center, the Latin American and Latino Studies Program, UIC Campus Programs, the Mexican Students of Aztlan (MeSA), and the School of Theatre and Music.  The program is made possible in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Meet Rosie Hanneke

Rosie's chosen superpower: Invisibility

Rosie’s chosen superpower: Invisibility

Name: Rosie Hanneke

Title: Assistant Information Services/Liaison Librarian & Assistant Professor

Department: Information Services, Research, and Bioinformatics

Hometown: St. Louis, Missouri

What I do at the LibraryI am liaison to the School of Public Health. I work with graduate students and faculty on the west side of campus, as well as a growing number of undergraduate students enrolled in the bachelor’s degree program.

What I like best about working here: I like working with faculty at both the library and the university who are on the cutting edge of research in their respective fields; it’s really motivating to be surrounded by the best and the brightest. I am also enjoying learning as much as possible about the wide range of issues being researched by faculty and students in Public Health, a discipline that has far-reaching implications for so many aspects of our lives and our communities.

In my off hours: I enjoy knitting, cooking, taking long walks around the city, and going to baseball games (especially the Baltimore Orioles!) I also love traveling. Last summer, I went to Montreal for the first time and had more poutine than I’d care to admit. This fall I’m looking forward to attending the American Public Health Association conference in New Orleans!

If I were an ice cream flavor, I’d be: Ted Drewes frozen custard from St. Louis–any flavor–because it’s the best!

If I had a superpower, it’d be: Invisibility
