The Resonance Series is a new guest lecture series brought to you by the OU School of Music and Jazz in June that connects OU students and Norman musicians with music professionals from around the world. Speakers will share their experiences, provide the future generation with insight into the industry and career paths, and answer questions students may have.

This inaugural semester features artists that combine for 22 GRAMMY wins and dozens of GRAMMY nominations. Guests have played in the bands of Michael Jackson, Prince, Beyoncé, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Stanley Clarke, Stevie Wonder, George Michael, Destiny's Child, Snarky Puppy, John Legend, Kirk Franklin, and many more. Multiple artists have been featured on NBC's The Voice, appeared in Time Magazine and People Magazine, and one was featured in an Academy award-winning and Grammy-winning documentary.

Join us live in person or online for this unique opportunity to listen to, talk with, and ask questions of the music industry's most successful experts.

Email Eric Walschap at e@ou.edu with any questions, comments, or suggestions for future artists.
