Music professor, student featured in festivals this summer

The Department of Music in Arts & Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis has some news to trumpet.


Christopher Stark, assistant professor of music and composer of contemporary classical music, has two notable performances coming up this summer. Stark’s composition “Ignatian Exercises” will be performed by the Arctic Philharmonic in Norway and at the Aspen Music Festival, in Colorado, this August.

In addition, Kelly Stathis, an incoming senior studying music, and a student of Stark’s, was accepted into the Atlantic Music Festival Composition Program this summer. A new piece of hers will premiere at the festival.
