About the lecturer:
John Koegel, professor and coordinator of music history, teaches courses and conducts research in European, American, and Mexican musical topics, as well as opera and musical theater. His book Music in German Immigrant Theater: New York City, 1840-1940 (University of Rochester Press, 2009) was named 2010 Gold Medalist for the ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Award, and was a Finalist for the Theater Library Association’s 2010 Freedley Award. Opera News (Metropolitan Opera Guild) described it as “Deep-delving. . . . Readable and entertaining. . . . A tour guide down a forgotten byway of the American immigrant experience.” His articles and reviews appear in journals and dictionaries in the U.S., Mexico, Spain, and Britain, such as the Journal of the American Musicological Society, American Music, Latin-American Music Review, Journal of the Royal Musical Association, Historia Mexicana, The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, and Diccionario de la Música Española e Hispanoamericana. Koegel holds degrees from Claremont Graduate University (Ph.D. musicology), Cambridge University (M.Phil. ethnomusicology), and Cal State Northridge (B.A. music education and Spanish). He serves as Book Review Editor for the Journal of the Society for American Music, is a member of the Council of the American Musicological Society, and in 2011 starts a three-year term as Board Member for Musicology for the College Music Society.
