This fall, Way Library will be hosting a musicologist-in-residence (a musicologist is someone who studies music from an academic or scholarly perspective). Dr. Ryan Ebright, Assistant Professor of Musicology at BGSU, will share his expertise in music with the community by presenting three programs and also holding monthly office hours at the library. Join us for these fascinating programs:

October 1st, 7 pm – The Music of Video Games
November 2nd, 7 pm – Musical Performance
December 7th, 10 am – Musical Modernist Tour and Instrument Petting Zoo (family program)

Dr. Ebright will also hold office hours from September through November. During these times you can drop in with a song or piece of music to discuss or writing that you’re working on. You can also ask about higher education, performance, public speaking and writing, research/writing history, and anything music related. Office hours are currently scheduled for September 5th from 4-7 pm and September 21st from 1-3 pm. Hours for October and November will be forthcoming.
BGSU musicologist Ryan Ebright has written for the New York Times and NewMusicBox, and his work appears in various scholarly publications. A dedicated public scholar, Dr. Ebright in the 2018-2019 season appeared with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Toledo Symphony, WGTE Public Media, and Way Public Library. He is working on a book titled Making American Opera after “Einstein,” which centers on the efforts of artists and institutions from the 1980s to the present to redefine what American opera is and how we experience it.
