The Don Wright Faculty of Music at Western University Canada is pleased to present the twelfth volume of Nota Bene: Canadian Undergraduate Journal of Musicology. This issue highlights the breadth of interdisciplinary research being conducted by the international undergraduate community, with papers from the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and Canada. The essays that follow address topics such as the influence of the Orient on Szymanowski’s Third Symphony; the exclusion of Harriet Smithson in the principal scholarship on Hector Berlioz and his Symphonie Fantastique; a comparison of two operas, Der Stein der Weisenand Die Zauberflöte; and finally, an analysis of Janet Jackson’s Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime performance. These essays reflect the high standard of undergraduate musicological thought and discourse at institutions worldwide. We hope you enjoy it!
