Recent News:

Professor Sarah Fuller, a founding member of Stony Brook’s music department, has announced her retirement following the end of the 2012-13 academic year. Her service to the department has been indispensable: aside from serving as the department chair and director of graduate studies, she has taught countless courses for both undergraduates and graduates, served as an advisor and mentor to musicians and scholars alike, and brought international recognition to the department through her groundbreaking research in medieval music. Among her numerous publications and achievements, she was elected to the Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2011, a rare achievement for a music scholar. Her absence will be felt, but Professor Fuller has assured that she will be present as a loyal member of the community.

Baron Prize Winner

Harpsichordist Gabriel Shuford was the 2011 winner of the Samuel Baron Prize, a biennial career advancement award given to exceptional recent graduates of Stony Brook University. The prize commemorates former faculty member flutist Samuel Baron and recognizes alumni who embody the qualities he was known for: musicianship, scholarship, humanity, generosity, intellectual curiosity, and a profound love for music and the pursuit of excellence. Shuford was awarded for his proficiency across diverse styles, from historical music to 21st century works, to jazz and blues. He performs throughout North America, and is the recipient of numerous awards, including the top prize at the 2007 Mae and Irving Jurow International Harpsichord Competition.
