About the Author

Sharon Mabry is an accomplished mezzo-soprano who has established a distinguished career as a recitalist and soloist with symphony orchestras and has performed at international festivals, premiering the works of over thirty contemporary composers. She is currently Professor of Music at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tennessee.


"From Ives to Berio, and Cowell to Libby Larsen, she has given an excellent summary of works by twentieth-century composers and the performance challenges they present...Mabry's book is a superb find for solo singer and choral conductor. It is highly recommended, as is her approach to twentieth-century vocal music."--Choral Journal "[A]n invaluable polemic for and introduction to singing the still insufficiently known vocal repertoire of the 20th century....Essential."--CHOICE
