The epic struggle between good and evil comes to life on stage in the musical phenomenon, Jekyll & Hyde. Based on the classic story by Robert Louis Stevenson and featuring a thrilling score of pop rock hits from multi-Grammy- and Tony-nominated Frank Wildhorn and double-Oscar- and Grammy-winning Leslie Bricusse, Jekyll & Hyde has mesmerized audiences the world over.
Distinctive among today’s young string quartets, the Omer Quartet won First Prize in the 2017 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, and it makes debuts during the 2018-2019 season in New York at Merkin Concert Hall and in Washington, D.C. at the Kennedy Center. The quartet came into prominence in 2013 when it received Grand Prize and gold medal at the Fischoff National Competition.

Speaker Series: Transforming the face of pharmacy by leading the convergence of science, healthcare and policy
Through the ages, the pharmacist has served as healer, apothecary, chemist and clinician, and today serves as an increasingly essential member of the healthcare team. Meanwhile, biomedical research is at a turning point, building upon the convergence of diverse fields—from genomics to chemistry and mathematics to engineering—to more rapidly translate novel laboratory insights into promising new treatments, just as the government and the markets are promoting the development of high-quality, accessible and affordable new treatments.
Numerous intersecting factors are transforming the face of pharmacy. Those will be explored when the dean of pharmacy from the University of Southern California gives the keynote address at the fall convocation for the College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Professions at South Dakota State University Oct. 21.
Vassilios Papadopoulos will give the message, “Transforming the face of pharmacy by leading the convergence of science, healthcare and policy,” at 3:30 p.m. Oct. 21 in Volstorff Ballroom B in the University Student Union.
