Dr. Kate Carr to present paper at National Association of Teachers of Singing


Dr. Kate Carr will be presenting a poster paper entitled “Approaching George Crumb’s American Songbook Collection” at the National Association of Teachers of Singing [NATS] 2012 National Convention in Orlando, Florida this July.

Carr collaborated last semester with colleagues Keith Lloyd, founder of Key City Percussion Ensemble, Dr. Danh Pham and Marc Sanders to perform songs from The American Songbook Collection at McMurry, the University of Oklahoma and the Texoma Region NATS convention at Oklahoma Baptist University. Her presentation at the National Convention will cover a brief overview of the song collection, which makes many technical demands on the singer and requires up to 120 percussion instruments, some rarely used.
