Earlier this month I had the privilege of presenting my paper about the music of Rebecca Saunders at the Twenty-Seventh Annual Symposium of Research in Music at Indiana University.
I always appreciate an opportunity to talk about Saunders’ music and to hear about people’s experiences with it. Although I was presenting at an early hour on a Saturday, I received some wonderful follow up questions from the graduate music theory and musicology students who were running and attending the conference. I especially enjoy conferences that mix departments like this one does. I am going to make a point of staying in touch to see what they program next year. I’m sure it will be wonderful.
