Jeff Perry ’84

Jeff Perry ’84 writes, “This school year began my 26th year teaching in the School of Music at Louisiana State University. In fall 2019 I’ll conclude my stint as editor of Music Theory Online, one of the oldest extant peer-reviewed online journals. This November I’ll give a paper on John Cage’s Song Books at the annual meeting of the Society for Music Theory in Columbus, OH. Last spring the Constantinides New Music Ensemble at LSU premiered my sonata for cello and piano, “Funeral Games.” I’ve been coleading a study abroad group from LSU in London and Edinburgh for the past five years. I missed the CalArts production at Fringe this year but hope to catch it next time!”
