Sean Morrison is a PhD Musicology student from Dallas, TX. After studying voice and composition at Oklahoma City University, he was the choir director and AP music theory instructor at Woodrow Wilson High School in east Dallas for six years. His MM thesis discussed American composer Don Gillis's Symphony No. 5 1/2 (1946). His topics of interest include vocal music, theory, American music, and twentieth-century music. He and his fellow UNT graduate music students helped to edit a scholarly edition of Monteverdi's Marian Vespers (1610), which will be published by Bärenreiter later this year. Outside of the classroom, he enjoys spending time with his wife and newborn son, smoking down-home Texas BBQ, and camping.
