Jokes, Jingles, Stories and More from Robin Batteau, April 11

WATCH THE VIDEO OF THE DEAN’S CONCERT WITH ROBIN BATTEAU

The Yale Law School community is invited to a Dean’s Concert and a whole lot more on Friday, April 11, when Robin Batteau, award-winning musician and jingle producer extraordinaire, presents “How to Turn a Harvard B.A. and a Career in Folk Music Into a Living Writing Jingles.”

Robin Batteau is a Grammy-winning, Emmy-winning, Clio-winning, and Oscar-nominated singer-songwriter-soloist and music producer. Six months out of Harvard with a degree in biochemistry, he was signed to his first record deal with Columbia Records. A dozen CDs later, he’s played his personal style of improvisational violin with everyone from Yo-Yo Ma to Benny Goodman to Bruce Springsteen and has had his songs sung by Whitney Houston, Judy Collins, and Paul Newman, to name a few. He’s helped advertising campaigns win nearly 1,000 awards with jingles like “I'm Lovin’ It” for McDonald’s, “This is Beer” for Budweiser, and “The Heartbeat of America” for Chevrolet.
    
The fun runs from noon to 1:30 in the Yale Law School Faculty Lounge. Lunch will be provided. To RSVP, please contact carolyn.poole@yale.edu.
