The University of Arizona Fred Fox School of Music presents:
Twenty-Third CMT Colloquium
Presented by Graduate Students in the Fred Fox School of Music
Friday, January 26, 2018
Green Room, School of Music, 4:00–6:00 p.m.
In September 2017, six graduate students traveled to New York to explore the archives at Carnegie Hall, the New York Philharmonic, and the New York Public Library. In this colloquium, they will present the fascinating results of their research in the form of several mini-presentations. This trip was made possible by the Daveen Fox Endowed Chair for Music Studies.
Kathy Acosta Zavala: “The 1943 League of Composers’ War-Themed Commissions”
Jessica Berg: “Challenging Leonard Bernstein’s Impact on Perceptions of Gustav Mahler’s Music in America from 1911 to 1968”
Blake Cesarz: “Jacob Druckman’s Horizon Festivals: Validating Midtown as the ‘New Romanticism’ ”
Thomas Peterson: “Henry Cowell’s Miniatures and Methods”
Candice Sierra: “Blurring the Border: The Relationship Between Carlos Chávez, Aaron Copland, and Pan-Americanism”
Jule Streety: “Gustav Mahler in New York: Critics and the New York Audience”
This colloquium is the twenty-third in a continuing series of lectures, to take place on the last Friday of the month. Each features presentations by a faculty member, student, or guest in the areas of Composition, Musicology, or Music Theory (CMT), followed by a time for questions, comments, and general discussion. It is hoped that these monthly sessions will be an opportunity to communicate current ideas and research in these areas within the Fred Fox School of Music.
