In Episode 21, we are talking to Dr. Albert Lee, a tenor who was born and raised in New Haven, Connecticut, attended Univ of Connecticut, Juilliard School, and received his Doctor of Music at Florida State University. He has taught at Troy University and University of Nevada at Reno.
Most recently, Albert was hired by the Yale School of Music as the Director of a new Program in Equity, Belonging and Student Life. Albert has a beautiful voice and is skilled in Opera, Oratorio, and Recital performances. For this podcast, we will also explore his knowledge and skills around his involvement in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives.
We wanted to talk with Albert for a lot of reasons, but his Ted Talk, “When I sign the National Anthem” really demonstrated an important point about Dynamic Competence. Embracing intentional and collaborative perspectives is really about holding multiple opposing ideas simultaneously. In this podcast we will explore this idea further, including what happens when we don’t.
