Todd Rundgren to Be Artist in Residence at Notre Dame

by VVN Music

Todd Rundgren is going to be a teacher, performer, community organizer and tribute presenter over the ten days that he's an Artist in Residence at Notre Dame University in South Bend, IN.

Between September 22 and October 1, Todd will teach a number of classes, perform with student bands, work with both teachers and students in the South Bend/Mishawaka community, organize used instruments for donation to students in need and present The Singring Award from Rundgren's Spirit of Harmony Foundation to university alumnus Bill Hurd.

Rundgren said of his new temporary job "I’ve never been to Notre Dame’s campus, and I’m really looking forward to it. It’s a chance to hang out with really smart young kids, and find out what they’re thinking, which has an influence on me, actually."

Ted Mandell, associate professional specialist in FTT, said "Todd Rundgren’s body of work epitomizes to our students, specifically in Arts and Letters, what we want them to become: artistic game changers on a global level, compassionate toward others and faithful to their core values and beliefs. To learn from one of the music industry’s great creative visionaries of the past 50 years is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our students. They might not realize it now, but their parents sure do."
