These young people are fascinated by American bea...

Есть возможность послушать о Дмитрии Шостаковиче. Не пропустите!

On February 16 at 4pm EST a free introductory lecture on Shostakovich’s life and works.

Dmitri Shostakovich (1906-1975) was not only one of the greatest composers of the modern era but also a reluctant political figure. From the moment of the triumphant premiere of his First Symphony in Leningrad in 1926 until the day of his death he remained one of the most prominent representatives of Soviet culture.
Born in Tsarist Russia, Shostakovich witnessed many of the defining events of his times: the creation of the USSR, the long nightmare of Stalinist terror, Hitler’s invasion, the Cold War, Khrushchev’s “Thaw,” Brezhnev’s era of stagnation. All these experiences were reflected in his music that provoked subjective responses and widely divergent political and psychological interpretations.
Shostakovich received numerous honors from the Communist Party to which he belonged, and yet the extent of his personal and creative loyalty to the Soviet regime remains a hotly debated issue.
Designed for wide audience, this course will trace the connections between Shostakovich’s biography and his inventive, profound and intellectually probing music.

To register for the lecture, or if you have any questions, please email [email protected]

Today's student highlight goes to Natalie Navarrete!

Student Highlight: Natalie Navarrete
Role in Flagship: Student - sophomore
Major: International Affairs, Spanish, Russian
Fun Fact: I am a captain and Defense Attorney on the UGA Mock Trial team and I also serve on the Defender Advocate Society!
Hometown: Boca Raton, FL

Why Flagship? I am fascinated by the political ties between Russia and Latin American countries and I wanted to learn Russian so that I could research this historic connection in both Spanish and Russian. This program is actually one of the main reasons that I chose to come to UGA because it offers so much opportunity to learn and grow with the language not only in the classroom but through tutoring and cultural activities.

Why Flagship? Even though I live 9 hours away and knew nobody in the state of Georgia, I decided to attend the University of Georgia for the Flagship Program, and I couldn’t be happier! I always knew I wanted to make a real difference in the world, but I also knew I wanted to have an experience different from the typical student and typical education. The Flagship Program fit that desire perfectly and continues to offer exceptional opportunities to build my resume and experience for jobs in the future. Learning a critical language like Russian is very attractive to the government, international corporations, and international non-governmental organizations. Since I have always wanted to become a government employee, this opportunity is preparing me in the best possible way to stick out among the crowd when applying to highly competitive government jobs. The program fuels my fascination for foreign cultures and languages every day. I am beyond thankful I am in this exceptional program and I can’t wait to continue my studies abroad!
