    Ephcasts - Reflections on the Nine Train

    Valerie D. Bailey Fischer, Chaplain to the College: Remembering the Nine Train -- As part of her reflection on the current coronavirus crisis, the Rev. Valerie Bailey Fischer, Chaplain to the College, remembers a previous national crisis -- the 9-11 attacks on the World Trade Center and thinks about how change in the moment of challenge may look different overtime. Valerie reflects on these kinds of changes through the memory of the nine train, a part of the vast mass transit system in New York that was disrupted and eventually cancelled after the 9-11 attacks.

    Williams Percussion Ensemble Concert

    Williams Percussion Ensemble Concert

    The Clark teams up with members of the Williams College Music Department for a special presentation, In a Sound Place. Looking for an opportunity to connect and to collaborate musically despite being away from campus, the members of the Williams Percussion Ensemble (WiPE) have found new ways to come together and create. The works in this program are the result of their efforts to make music together despite social distancing, and in spite of the technological constraints of the medium through which we are all communicating these days. This music explores their individual spaces and acoustics, new temporalities, and the very specific physical objects at their disposal with which they can make sound. Continuing a longstanding collaboration with the Clark, the members of WiPE bring a live virtual performance to the Clark to continue to connect with audiences despite separation. Program Casey Thomas Anderson, SLIPS (2015) for more than 2 (reading) Nomi Epstein, Combine, Juxtapose, Delayed Overlap (2013/2017) for 4 or more players Rebecca Kuo ‘22, Trio for Cups (2018) Scott Wollschleger, Folding (2012) Ryan Ross Smith, Study No. 38 (Variations on Sol LeWitt’s Variations of Incomplete Open Cubes)(2014/2018) WiLLIAMS PERCUSSION ENSEMBLE Matthew Gold, director Rebecca Kuo ’22 Thomas McGee ‘22 Jeffrey Miller Daniel O’Connor Geoffrey Salmon ’21 Tiffany Tien ‘20 TJ Watkins ‘23 Stay connected with the Clark! https://www.clarkart.edu

    Clyde Criner III Tribute: Part 1 (American Jazz Fusion Pianist and Composer)

    Clyde Criner III Tribute: Part 1 (American Jazz Fusion Pianist and Composer)

    Our college roommate and friend, Clyde Criner III (1952-1991), left this planet way too early, and at a time when attention could not properly be paid. What started out as a live presentation to be presented in his honor at our Williams College 45th Reunion in June 2020 is now rolling out as a series of 10-minute videos. Here now is Part 1: Tribute to Clyde Criner III '75: Musician and Educator/Albany to Williams. Please share, and look for our forthcoming videos. Clyde was an exceptional jazz and fusion piano/keyboard artist. He composed 800 songs. He recorded three albums and played with many other artists on their albums; we will be featuring interviews with some. Additionally, he received a Ph.D. in Music Education from UMass-Amherst, taught there, and at Williams College, LIU, Bennington, and elsewhere. His devoted students adored him, as did we all. Clyde was one of the finest human beings it was ever our privilege to know. We miss him. It is our privilege to honor and remember him and educate new generations about this remarkable person. Thank you for watching, sharing, and please be so kind as to leave comments, especially if you knew our friend, or found his music as appealing as we all did. Sincerely, Peter Hillman, Ken Kubie, Jim Baker [email protected] Please like our Clyde Criner Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/Clyde-Criner-Tribute-114847516873633/

Connect with Ephs

The Office of Alumni Relations encourages alumni to connect and support one another by using the resources below. We are here for each other— to share advice, experiences, and resources as we face the COVID-19 crisis in our communities, at home, and around the world.

EphLink  |  Williams’ first-of-its-kind mentoring platform for students and alumni
Williams LinkedIn Alumni Group

Class of 2020

The Class of 2020 website was created by the Office of College Relations to be a hub of information for the Class, as students finish their time at the college and begin their lifetime as alumni. Each week, there will be updated content about the class, upcoming events, and resources.

 

View the Website

 

Thank You, to all Ephs on the Frontlines

Whether you are an Eph in healthcare, education, public service, community organizations, etc., we’d like to share a snippet of your story as you face COVID-19 in your professional occupation. Share your reflection here. You can read past reflections here.

Support Ephs

Not surprisingly, Williams alumni have been reaching out to ask how they can help students and fellow alumni.  Fortunately, Williams already has robust systems in place to connect students and alumni — and alumni to each other.
1. Utilize EphLink as an effective and efficient way to mentor undergrads and other alumni, as well as tap into the wealth of resources to be found on the platform, including an alumni-to-alumni jobs board and discussion groups aligned around shared interests. Because we appreciate that everything about your life has changed – including your daily routine – please know that EphLink enables you to customize your level of engagement, from availability to areas of expertise. Joining the EphLink community is easy; feel free to reach out to [email protected] with questions.
Community Support Challenge
2. Post Full-Time Jobs, Internships or Virtual Short-Term Projects. As you can imagine, Williams students, especially our graduating Class of 2020, are suddenly faced with a job market that has plummeted from the best in 50 years to among the worst. Some hiring organizations have already rescinded job offers and many remain undecided. If your organization has any student/entry-level opportunities – from a full-time job offer, to an 8-10 week internship or even a virtual short-term project – we ask that you share them via the ’68 Center for Career Exploration For Alumni page. If you have questions or need assistance posting your opportunities, please reach out to [email protected].
3. The best way to provide financial support for students is through the Alumni Fund & Parents Fund, designated for highest priorities. Williams is committed to taking care of all of our students during this transition and time of uncertainty.  It’s the unrestricted current dollars from the Alumni Fund & Parents Fund that give the college the flexibility to rise to the occasion in emergencies. If you would like to support these efforts you may make gifts online at give2.williams.edu. Beyond designating for highest priorities, you may indicate “COVID-19” in the special instructions portion of the giving form to convey your intent.
4. If you want to make a connection with fellow Ephs to provide continuity in this unsettled time you can look up individual alumni in the directory.  You’ll find ways to find and connect with alumni affinity groups here.
