In season three, episode one of “On Target,” co-hosts Benjamin Pontz and Mary Frasier discuss the college’s plan to hire armed external security contractors and recap the college’s first faculty meeting of the year. Then, they sit down with Dr. Cesar Leal, Assistant Professor of Music & Director of Orchestral Activities in the Sunderman Conservatory of Music about his plans for classroom teaching — such as a new course on “Women in Mozart” — and for leading the orchestra including a passion for “exploring the voices of minorities” in selecting music. He also makes a pitch to campus organizations — specifically fraternities — to partner with the Gettysburg College Symphony Orchestra.
