An article and interview featuring Margaret Barrett, B.M. ’08, M.M. ’10. “I went to college to study composition with the end goal of being a singer-songwriter. So as I set out for college, I saw the study of music composition as a way to fully understand the craft of musical expression and become the best songwriter possible,” Barrett said. She now serves as the executive director at Voices of Change, the Southwest's premiere professional chamber music ensemble dedicated to the performance of music of our time. Currently, she is rehearsing her 30-minute composition “Universal Language,” writing a percussion piece for Mark Utley at University of New York, Stony Brook, and preparing to manage the production of Steven Stucky's “The Classical Style” at Carnegie Hall in December.
