Korre Foster, assistant professor of music, will present “The Rhetorical Implications of Charpentier's use of Silence” at the 16th Biennial International Conference on Baroque Music, held this July at the esteemed Universität Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria. This is Foster’s second presentation for this society. His first presentation was for the 2010 conference in Belfast.
“I am excited to present along side scholars in the field of Baroque Music: Graham Sadler, Shirley Thompson, Cathérine Cessac (biographer of the composer),” Foster said. “Baroque music is fascinating, and our students need to be familiar with it. This is why I paired our Chamber Singers with Music City Baroque several years ago to perform JS Bach's Mass in g-minor.”
