Innovative thinking in a wide range of genres
Our faculty members pursue research in genres ranging from medieval chant to contemporary experimental composition, canonic orchestral repertoire, opera, film music, and diverse styles understood to be popular music. We foster a vibrant intellectual climate that encourages innovative approaches and non-traditional thinking about music as a social text.
Research from our school has recently been published and presented in national and international forums including books, articles, conferences and media interviews. Specific topics focus on opera, music and culture, popular music, music and nature, and more. Learn more about our variety of research-related accomplishments:
