In their recent book, Rhythms of the Game, The Link Between Musical and Athletic Performance, musician and former New York Yankee Bernie Williams teamed up with SUNY Purchase professors Robert Thompson and David Gluck to explore how athletes and musicians can improve their level of performance on the field or on the stage. See a promotional video accompanying the project here.
Since its release, the book and its authors continue to receive accolades and attention from nationwide media. According to Thompson, Rhythms of the Game wouldn’t have happened had it not been for Purchase College. “It’s uniquely a Purchase product,” says Thompson. “The beauty of Purchase is that you can embark on these wonderfully collaborative projects that transcend traditional boundaries, due to the intellectual and artistic diversity on campus.”
