Faculty artist Wendel Patrick’s podcast “Out of the Blocks” has received an Edward R. Murrow Award. The podcast focuses on the diversity that can be found on specific blocks throughout Baltimore, and presents the residents’ stories in a documentary-style setting. The episode that was specifically honored was “2100 Edmondson,” which aired in 2017.
Wendel Patrick and the Peabody Hip Hop Music Production: History and Practice class was recently featured in The Baltimore Sun for bridging the worlds of classical music and hip hop. The class was started as one of the Dean’s incentive grants to “prepare more well-rounded musicians for a changing job market.”
