C of I hosts presentation on music and athletics

February 20, 2014

The College of Idaho is pleased to welcome guest speaker David Gluck to campus for a presentation that is sure to interest athletes, musicians and just about everyone in between. Gluck, author of the book Rhythms of the Game: The Link between Musical and Athletic Performance, will present “Rhythms of the Game: How to Perform at Your Best,” beginning at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 25, inside the Langroise Center for Performing and Fine Arts. The event is free and open to the public.

“Rhythms of the Game” is a multimedia presentation based upon Gluck’s award-winning book, which he co-authored with former New York Yankees outfielder and guitarist Bernie Williams as well as Grammy-nominated music producer Bob Thompson. The presentation takes the audience on a journey from “good” to “great” and explains how elite athletes and artists conquer their fears, embrace failure and ultimately achieve extraordinary success. The presentation also explains how what works for athletes and musicians can work for anyone, anywhere – whether it’s a concert stage, an athletic field, a classroom or even the office.

Gluck’s presentation also features exclusive video footage of Williams speaking directly to the audience as he provides insight and commentary to demonstrate how he applied various performance techniques and mindsets to high-pressure situations on the field.
