About the Artist
Dr. Paul Grove simultaneously achieved both a research degree (Ph.D.) and the equivalency of a performance degree (DMA) at the University of Arizona. This background has helped to support and shape this program in the following ways. He will explore music from different religious traditions; the influence of African-American music on the culture of the United States; variations in musical notation; and folkloric and instrumental traditions from around the world. Prominently featured will be the work “Farwardin” by Dr. Ustad Sarmast educator and composer in exile from Kabul Afghanistan.
