Colin McAllister Colloquium

October 27, 2017 - 3:30pm
Old Cabell Hall Room 107

The UVA McIntire Department of Music welcomes Colin McAllister, who will be giving a colloquium on Friday, October 27th at 3:30pm in room 107 of Old Cabell Hall.  This event is free and open to the public.

Colin McAllister engages deeply with cross-disciplinary ideas in the humanities, particularly the intersection between music and history, classics and theology. His performances as a guitarist have been hailed as “sparkling….delivered superbly” (San Francisco Chronicle) and "ravishing"  (San Diego Union Tribune), and he has recorded on the Innova, Centaur, Naxos, Albany, Old King Cole, Vienna Modern Masters, Carrier and Tzadik labels. He is the editor of the Cambridge Companion to Apocalyptic Literature (forthcoming 2019) and has two publications with Productions d’OZ: The Vanguard Guitar and Fourteenth Century Counterpoint: Music of the Chantilly Codex. The Vanguard Guitar was praised by Soundboard magazine as “a great success…not only a primer of modern techniques, but also a library of current performance practices.” His guitar instructional course, Learning to Play Guitar: Chords, Scales and Solos was produced by The Great Courses and was released in April 2017. Colin is an Artist Partner with Taylor Guitars, and currently serves as Music Program Director at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs.

You can see McAllister perform later that same day as part of the UVA Music Library's popular series, "Making Noise", in a performance entitled "The Library at Night".

Old Cabell Hall is located on the south end of UVA's historic lawn, directly opposite the Rotunda.  (map) Parking is available in the central grounds parking garage on Emmet Street, in the C1 parking lot off McCormick Rd, and in the parking lots at the UVA Corner.  Handicap parking is available in the small parking lot adjacent to Bryan Hall.
