Prof. Tim Cloeter contributes to a National Symposium in Washington DC

Prof. Tim Cloeter will present a paper at the National Symposium on American Choral Music in Washington, DC, June 29-30, 2012. The symposium celebrates a five-year collaboration between the American Choral Directors Association and the Library of Congress for the building of an American Choral Music website that focuses on the period 1870–1923. Cloeter’s paper, entitled “George Frederick Bristow’s Niagara Symphony: an Early American Symphonist Begins the Search for an American Musical Style,” grew out of his preparation of a performance edition from manuscript sources of the cantata-like fourth movement of the Niagara Symphony.
