Special CSL Social Hour, April 28, 2017

Are you tired of exam preparations or project deadlines and need a refreshing study break? Guess what we have in store for you – another CSL Musical Social Hour!! We are excited to have Alfonso Valdes, Managing Director, Smart Grid Technologies at the Information Trust Institute to perform at this week’s special CSL Social Hour on Friday, April 28 at 3pm in 369 CSL.

Bio: For his day job, Alfonso Valdes manages a portfolio of projects in energy system cyber security for the Information Trust Institute. But his passion is playing a number of string instruments: ukulele, Spanish guitar, Hawaiian guitar, acoustic rock guitar, Baroque mandolin, and bluegrass mandolin. You never know what instrument he will bring, or what he will play. And usually, neither does he. It can be a problem when he brings the bluegrass mandolin to a flamenco gig.

Fun fact: Alfonso has literally been a professional musician and has played live on WILL radio. He sometimes writes his own compositions, too.

Important: The April Video-Of-The-Month submissions are due by noon, Thursday, April 27. The link to upload your videos is:  go.illinois.edu/bestvideo.
