Jan 09, 2019

Glenn McClure, the upcoming Lenna Visiting Professor at St. Bonaventure University, will be included in today’s broadcast of NPR’s “All Things Considered,” which airs from 4-6 p.m. EST.

McClure was interviewed as part of the network’s coverage of the U.S. government shutdown.

McClure, a composer, educator, and data scientist, teaches Music and Humanities at Paul Smiths College in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. He has also served on the faculties of SUNY at Geneseo and the Eastman School of Music at the University of Rochester.

McClure will present classroom lectures and public presentations during his March 18-29 residency at St. Bonaventure and at Jamestown Community College. A detailed schedule will be available in February.

The Lenna Endowed Visiting Professorship, established in 1990, is funded through gifts from the late Betty S. Lenna Fairbank and Reginald A. Lenna of Jamestown. It is designed to bring scholars of stature in their field to St. Bonaventure University and Jamestown Community College for public lectures.
