As a part of the Marilyn K. Glick Women's Enrichment Series, the Propylaeum initiated WES Goes to School which provides programs for students at Shortridge High School. WES Goes to School has enabled us to expand our mission of celebrating and promoting the potential and contributions of women and girls in our culture.
On March 6, 2020 the Propylaeum will sponsor jazz pianist/composer and IU faculty member Monika Herzig as she shares with the Shortridge students the history, music, and challenges of women jazz artists. Her all female jazz group Sheroes just recently returned from its tour of Europe's most prestigious jazz clubs and Egypt's Jazz Tales Festival sharing music from its acclaimed Sheroes album/CD. Monika holds a doctorate in Music Education with a minor in Jazz Studies from Indiana University. She is the author of David Baker--A Legacy in Music and Experiencing Chick Corea: A Listener's Companion. Propylaeum members will also remember Monika as the featured performer at a recent Salon
