Dr. Scott Robbins had a very busy spring. He presented an expanded, hour-long version of his paper “’Long Time, Waiting to Hear the Sound’—Progressive-Rock Compositions as Pathways to Advanced Topics in Rhythm and Meter,” at the Society of Composers Region VI Conference at the University of Texas.
Ballet Spartanburg featured choreography to several of his works during their recent Dansynergy 9 program. Dr. Robbins’s “Meditation for Clarinet and Marimba” was premiered at the Southeastern Composers’ League Annual Forum at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, and “Three Blues for Cello and Trumpet” was performed at the College Music Society’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference.
Dr. Robbins’s served as music composition adjudicator for the middle school and high school division of the South Carolina Parent Teacher Association’s annual arts program. His 60-second “Fugue for Solo Flute” appears on Iwona Glinka’s new CD release, “One Minute,” on Sarton Records. The CD features 60 one-minute compositions for solo flute by 42 composers from 17 countries.
