Music professor to be featured in British video series

Marshall University Music Professor Dr. Vicki P. Stroeher will be featured in a video sponsored by the Britten-Pears Foundation Archives in Aldeburgh, Suffolk, United Kingdom.

The archives began a new video series in January, in which different works by 20th century English composer, Benjamin Britten, are featured. While visiting the archives in November 2017, Stroeher filmed a short segment on Britten’s operetta, Paul Bunyan, which will run on the Britten-Pears Foundation YouTube channel during the week of Feb. 26.

Stroeher also talks about Paul Bunyan in a longer video that will be shown during the Britten-Pears Foundation annual exhibit, which will run from March to December 2018, and wrote an essay, “Britten’s American Opera” for the exhibition program book.

A Britten specialist, Stroeher has co-edited two books on Britten, My Beloved Man: The Letters of Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears (2016) and Benjamin Britten Studies: Essays on an Inexplicit Art (2017). She has a book chapter in Literary Britten (forthcoming, 2018) and will be editing a book at the request of Cambridge University Press, titled Benjamin Britten in Context (forthcoming 2021). She is also working on a monograph about Britten’s songs and song cycles.
