DIRECT CONTACT, a CD by Roberta Rust (BM ’76, Piano), continues to receive glowing reviews since its release in May 2019.
Finbarr Malafronte (BM ’08, MM ’09, Guitar), who studied with Manuel Barrueco, released a new album in April with the label Quartz. The album called Maestros of the Baroque is entirely composed of Finbarr’s arrangements of music by Jean-Philippe Rameau and Domenico Scarlatti.
CNSNC, Peabody’s student-run composers collective comprised of Gu Wei (MM ’17, Composition), Zachary Gulaboff Davis (MM ’19, Music Theory Pedagogy; DMA ’19, Composition), and Master’s candidates in composition Daniel Despins and Seo Yoon Kim, has secured professional conductor Matthew Jenkins Jaroszewicz of the Canton Symphony to lead their spring 2020 concert. Jaroszewicz will lead Peabody student musicians in premieres of the collective’s five members, all Peabody students or recent graduates. The event will take place on March 8 at 3 pm at Peabody’s Centre Street Performance Studio. This endeavor was made possible by an award from Peabody’s Career Development Grant.
Peabody Institute was featured on Baltimore Sun’s Best of Baltimore for the best free classical performance on April 10, 2017.

Tim Smith furthered that “The high caliber of Peabody faculty and visiting artists, not to mention the impressive level of the student musicians, sweetens the deal all the more.”
