Vanderbilt was well represented at the Gilberto Gil concert on November 5 presented by the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Gil is an acclaimed Brazilian singer, songwriter, activist, and one of the founders of Brazil’s Tropicalia movement. From 2003–2008, he served as Brazil’s minister of culture. Marcio Bahia (Department of Spanish and Portuguese) worked with Schermerhorn to bring more than 70 students and faculty to the concert and arranged for students to go backstage afterwards to meet the artist.
