Geoff Baker (l) and Mark Bowden (r)
Congratulations to two of our academic members of staff, Geoff Baker and Mark Bowden, on being awarded prestigious research grants.
Geoff Baker (Professor of Music), has been awarded an AHRC Leadership Fellowship, which will cover 18 months, and will support his project that he will begin in September 2017.
Mark Bowden (Director of Composition) has been awarded a 2-year Leverhulme Research Fellowship to enable him to complete an exciting new opera commission. It will involve resurrecting an unrealized project planned by two of the Twentieth Century's most notable artistic figures. We can't reveal too much about the details of this at the moment, but look out for further updates as the project develops.
Congratulations to Geoff and Mark, and we look forward to seeing the fruits of your work!
