Composer Asha Srinivasan received tenure this spring at Lawrence University, in Appleton, Wisconsin. In the full announcement issued by Lawrence’s Provost, David Burrows speaks ecstatically of Srinivasan’s appointment:
“Professor Srinivasan’s students are ecstatic about the new dimensions in music that she brings to Lawrence. Her studio is a source of great inspiration and creativity. In the classroom and in the studio, she is described as a wonderful teacher who enriches the quality of the conservatory experience.”
Srinivasan is one of Shastra’s commissioned composers this year: She will be writing an original work for the talented young musicians of Face the Music, which will premiere on our first festival in spring of 2015. We are so excited to be working with her!
