Reminder: Cook Forum moved to Penn Stater

January 13, 2009

Kim Cook, Penn State laureate, will present "Making Music at Penn State: A Cellist's Story," as the next speaker in the Penn State Forum series. The event runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Jan. 23, at the Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel. This event was scheduled originally to be held in the Nittany Lion Inn, but has been moved to the Penn Stater to accommodate both a larger stage for Cook and cellists who will perform with her as part of the presentation, and the large number of guests who have purchased tickets to the sold-out event.

Cook has performed to critical acclaim as a soloist in 25 countries including the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Finland, Russia, China, Israel, Jordan, Latin America, and throughout the United States. She has toured extensively as an International Artistic Ambassador for the U.S. State Department, presenting concerts and master classes throughout the world.

The luncheons, modeled after the National Press Club Speaker Series, include a presentation by an invited speaker, followed by audience questions. The doors open at 11:30 a.m., with the speaker beginning at noon. This year the series is being sponsored by the offices of the Executive Vice President and Provost, the Senior Vice president for Finance and Business, and the Penn State Bookstore.
