Straight Into Tangles and Second String Quartet Paper Talk at College Music Society Great Lakes Regional Conference

I am very excited to be taking part in this year’s College Music Society Great Lakes Regional Conference. I will be presenting a talk based on my dissertation “Aaron Cassidy’s Second String Quartet: Resilient Structures, Indeterminate Localities, and Performance Practice” and “Straight Into Tangles,” my orchestra work commissioned by Dr. Tiffany Chang and Oberlin Arts and Sciences Orchestra. The full dissertation is now online in a free to all space here: https://www.ideals.illinois.edu/handle/2142/113049

CMS Great Lakes was my first toe-dip into College Music Society several years ago. I like attending because of its presentations always reflect the organization’s inter-departmental focus.

Presenting at College Music Society Central Regional Conference

This weekend I will be presenting a talk based on my dissertation “Aaron Cassidy’s Second String Quartet: Resilient Structures, Indeterminate Localities, and Performance Practice” and my orchestra work commissioned by Dr. Tiffany Chang and Oberlin Arts and Sciences Orchestra.

This will be the first time I get to publicly share about my dissertation research. The talk overlaps with the paper in many ways, but I’ve tried to make it something that fits a 20-ish minute presentation space.
