Enhance your Concert Experience
Before every IBO subscription concert, a special Pre-Concert Chat with Dr. Matthew Balensuela will give you insights into the music you will hear on the program. Pre-Concert Chats are FREE to all ticket holders.
Dr. C Matthew Balensuela is the James B. Stewart Professor of Music History at DePauw University. His research interests include the history of music theory, music history pedagogy, and American popular music of the early 20th century. His publications include Music Theory from Boethius to Zarlino: A Bibliography and Guide, co-authored with David Russell Williams, and articles in Grove Music Online, Acta musicologica, Fontis artis musicae, Popular Music and Society, The Journal of Jazz Studies, and The Routledge Companion to Popular Music and Humor. Balensuela was the general editor of The Norton Guide to Teaching Music History and the founding editor of The Journal of Music History Pedagogy.
For the 23-24 concert season Pre-Concert Chats are graciously sponsored by Shannon and Blake Beckemeyer.
