The Poetic Horn: Rethinking Expressive Intent In Schumann's Adagio Und Allegro, Op. 70, Samantha Duhé 2019 Duquesne University

The Poetic Horn: Rethinking Expressive Intent In Schumann's Adagio Und Allegro, Op. 70, Samantha Duhé

Graduate Student Research Symposium

At first glance, Robert Schumann’s Adagio und Allegro for horn and piano, Op. 70 appears to be simply one showpiece out of many the composer wrote in his later years to appeal to a middle class market of amateur musicians. The piece is often dismissed as such, and as a result, scholars tend to exclude it from their discourse on Schumann’s expressive musical techniques. Adagio und Allegro is yet to have been investigated in light of this discourse. One of the composer’s musical devices, recognized by Berthold Hoeckner (1997), is to mimic the sound of a tone ...

Underground Opera Troupe: Early Opera In The Twenty-First Century, Abigail Josephine Hughes 2019 Otterbein University

Underground Opera Troupe: Early Opera In The Twenty-First Century, Abigail Josephine Hughes

Honors Thesis Projects

Through this project I sought to examine early opera as well as opera in America today and educate the average person about the value and availability of the genre. In order to do so, I organized and directed a small traveling opera troupe to perform in a variety of locations throughout Columbus, Ohio. The troupe performed at three locations over the course of the fall semester in 2018. With each performance, I worked to educate as many people as possible about opera and its presence in society.

Opera in America is, and always has been, a thriving genre. Both traditional ...


3d Procedural Maze & Cave Generation, Jacob Sharp 2019 University of Lynchburg

3d Procedural Maze & Cave Generation, Jacob Sharp

Student Scholar Showcase

The goal of this project is to generate a maze or cave procedurally so that a player may be able to explore infinitely without a reoccurring pattern. The project also utilizes Virtual Reality (VR); the user will be able to put on a VR Headset and become more immersed in a procedural environment. One of the challenges that needed to be overcome was simple random number generators did not generate natural looking worlds. Introducing VR to the project created the additional challenge of preventing the user from becoming motion sick. These challenges were both addressed through many hours of research ...

Music In Japanese Prisoner Of War Camps, Zerai Thornton 2019 University of Lynchburg

Music In Japanese Prisoner Of War Camps, Zerai Thornton

Student Scholar Showcase

During World War II, both the Axis and Allied powers held enemy soldiers and civilians in prisoner of war (POW) camps with little recreational activities. Although some Japanese POW camps did not allow their prisoners to engage in recreational activities, inmates transformed songs into acceptable performance practices. With the intent of improving music pedagogy, the purpose of this research was to investigate music in Japanese POW camps. The particular problems of this study were to (1) examine traditional practices in Japanese POW camps; (2) determine how music developed a Japanese POW camp; and (3) create a POW camp song, entitled ...


The Clarinet From Antiquity To Today, Nathaniel Estes 2019 University of Lynchburg

The Clarinet From Antiquity To Today, Nathaniel Estes

Student Scholar Showcase

The clarinet, coming from simple cane instruments with a slit cut into the cane to create a reed, to the modern clarinet with scientific advancements in the instrument and reed making process, not only shows how the clarinet has evolved, but how technology itself has evolved over hundreds of years. With the intent of improving music pedagogy and performance, the purpose of this research is to investigate how the clarinet evolved to become the modern clarinet. The particular problems of this study were to (1) trace historical development of the clarinet, (2) identify mechanical and stylistic characteristics between the Basset ...

Chanting The Psalms In The 21st-Century, David Madeira 2019 Belmont University

Chanting The Psalms In The 21st-Century, David Madeira

enLightening Talks

Many churches in a variety of congregations are experiencing a renewed sense of the importance of singing the Psalms in Christian worship. However, Psalm-singing in non-mainline Protestant traditions almost exclusively consists of psalm-hymns, poetic paraphrases that can often stray far from the original texts. In liturgical traditions, chanting of the Psalms is common, but the available methods are either so difficult they are only performed by skilled choirs, or have been so greatly simplified for congregational singing that there is little room for musicality. My research has led me to develop a new form of congregational psalm chant that is ...
