Dr. Paul Grove

Grove

Dr. Paul Grove’s love of music has brought him before enthusiastic audiences in several states and countries around the world.  He has been fortunate to have collaborated with several contemporary musicians including Guenther Schuller and Sir Michael Tippett.  Paul has performed chamber music with members of the San Francisco and Spokane Symphonies and has been a featured soloist with the Spokane Symphony, the Coeur d’ Alene Symphony, the Gonzaga University Symphony, and several other regional northwest ensembles.

Awards include national recognition as a recipient of a Jacob Javits research grant for his study of Russian music, in particular the music of Sergei Ivanovich Taneev; a Presser Scholarship for outstanding musical and scholastic work; the Graduate College Fellowship at the University of Arizona; as well as prizes and distinctions in several national and international classic guitar festivals and competitions including the Guitar Foundation of America Competition, the Stotsenberg International Guitar Competition, the Great Lakes Competition, the Norman Sholin Memorial Competition, and the Concours Competition at the Peabody Conservatory.

His primary mentors have been Aaron Shearer, Manuel Barrueco and Tom Patterson for guitar, and Jean Eichelberger Ivey for composition.

As for the program of contemporary music you will be hearing this evening, several of the works were studied as part of a lecture/recital that was presented at the Museum of Art and Culture in Spokane in 2016 entitled: ”Sympathy for the ‘Diabolus in Musica’—an Exploration of the Compositional Potentialities of the (0,1,6) set.”
