Kevin Guico '14May 15, 2013

For one month during the summer of 2013, University of the Pacific Conservatory of Music professor Dr. Robert Coburn will be participating in a residency at the Yaddo Artists Colony in Saratoga Springs, New York.

Music Theory and Composition Program Director, Dr. Coburn, was invited to the Yaddo Artist Colony to compose music for international pianist Satoko Inoue from Tokyo, Japan. Since it's founding in 1900, the colony has a rich history of composers in residence including: Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Chen Yi as well as others from all over the globe. It spans over 400 acres in Saratoga Springs to provide a supportive and cohesive environment for the creative mind's of artists to work without interruption.  

"I'm excited about this opportunity and honored that they would invite me," says Dr. Coburn. "It will be another learning experience for me as well as a productive one."  

The residency will indeed be a great success, and the Conservatory of Music eagerly awaits the composition as well as the return of the Music Composition professor. Congratulations and warm wishes go out to Dr. Robert Coburn for being invited to participate in the residency of the Yaddo Artist Colony in Saratoga Springs, New York.
