USD Distinguished Professor Demonstrates Musical Collaboration March 23
Gray is the 2014-2016 Esther and Wayne Knutson Distinguished Professor for the College of Fine Arts. She plans a second presentation next year, focusing on collaborative works by women composers.
Monday’s event in the Colton Recital Hall on the USD campus is free and open to the public.
Joining Professor Gray will be Tracelyn Gesteland, mezzo soprano; Brandon Hendrickson, baritone; Eunho Kim, violin and Marie-Elaine Gagnon. The five will discuss and demonstrate the process of creating musical collaborations.
Gray is acclaimed as a specialist in collaborative playing. As a member of the Rawlins Trio she has toured in Taiwan and Panama and has recorded four CDs of American piano trios.
The Knutson Award is named for Wayne Knutson, distinguished professor emeritus, who provided 35 years of service to USD as a professor, chair of the Department of English, Dean of the College of Fine Arts and Vice President for Academic Affairs.
