Musicology and Historical Performance



About

I am a musicologist and scholar-performer specializing in historical performance practices of classical music from the 14th through early19th centuries, as well as vernacular music in the American Southwest and the Louisiana Territory.
My research inerests include:

  • French and Spanish colonial and mission music in the Americas
  • Rhetoric and music in the 17th and 18th centuries
  • Music, race, gender, and empire in the long eighteenth century
  • Improvisation traditions from the 15th through the 19th centuries
  • Transmission of music across cultural borders (Baroque Borderlands)
  • Historical performance practices/Arts Practice Research
