CA’s New Choral Director Tai Oney is a World-Class Musician Who’s Serious about Teaching

February 01, 2019

A charismatic opera singer and Boston University graduate student, Tai Oney became CA’s choral director in September 2018. It’s a role that represents a change for the award-winning countertenor, who has performed around the world and spent much of the last decade based in London. But it’s a role that allows him to combine his own artistic pursuits with his desire to give to others what a dynamic teacher once provided him.

Composer-in-Residence Stefanie Lubkowski Is Getting Students Involved in Creating New Music

March 26, 2019

Usually, the Chameleon Chamber Players listen to unfamiliar pieces before trying to play them. But this year, the five-member advanced ensemble had a chance to approach music differently thanks to a gift of funding for Concord Academy’s new composer-in-residence, Stefanie Lubkowski. In addition to teaching individual lessons in composition, Lubkowski has included student-musicians in the creation and development of an entirely new work. Her approach speaks to one of her main professional goals: to help young people see writing music as a dynamic process.

In a Guest Artist Residency, Lily Kind ’04 Brings Her Love of Vernacular and Experimental Dance Back to CA

February 19, 2019

The love Lily Kind ’04 has for vernacular and vaudevillian dance traditions and her abiding interest in taking risks were evident in her teaching approach during her two-week visit to CA in January. Kind is one in a series of professional dance artists — including Alexander Brady and Rika Okamoto from Twyla Tharp Dance — who have come to campus this year to work with and choreograph for the CA Dance Project and guest-teach dance classes. The Dance Company (now Dance Project), which she took part in all four of her years as a CA student, anchored her experience. “It’s where I learned how to be an artist,” she says.”
