Hsu has been a member of the board of CAMA since July 2000, and since that time has served as chair of CAMA’s Music Education Committee. Under her leadership, CAMA has developed a music appreciation program that brings systematic music instruction to 13 elementary schools in Santa Barbara County, and to Goleta Valley Junior High. In addition to instruction in music appreciation, the program includes regular live music performances by students and faculty from UCSB, Westmont and Santa Barbara City College.

Hsu has a bachelor of arts degree from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Ore., and a Ph.D. in musicology from the University of Southern California. She completed two years of graduate study in Salzburg and Vienna on a Fulbright Fellowship and later held a second Fulbright Fellowship at the University of Hamburg and the Free University in Berlin.

Other officers in CAMA’s 2008-09 Board of Directors include André Saltoun, first vice president; Nancy Wood, second vice president; Deborah Bertling, secretary; and John Lundegard, treasurer.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
