Saturday May 5th, University of Orange’s Music City leaders Dr. Margaux Simmons and Ray Sykes performed and discussed their music at Luna Stage’s Black Box Theater. This was the first in a series of Community Musicology Artist Showcases. Simmons & Sykes reflected on some of the questions we’ve been exploring in our Community Musicology Class & Research Group: What role does music play in your life? What sounds are a part of your history? What role do you see your music playing in our community?
