Composition by Pitt-Bradford professor performed in Massachusetts


BRADFORD, Pa. – An original composition by Dr. John Levey, assistant professor of music at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, was performed this summer in Jamaica Plain, Mass., by the Boston New Music Initiative.

The piece, “The Rain was Ending,” was part of an all-vocal concert presented by the non-profit group dedicated to the music of young composers.

Soprano Sonja Tengblad sang the text, a poem by early 20th century writer Lawrence Binyon, accompanied by pianist Leah Kosch.

Levey said he chose the poem because “it’s a very visual poem, and it’s not very long.”

The poem describes a sick boy looking out of his window and watching his friends playing.

Levey joined the faculty at Pitt-Bradford two years ago after earning his doctoral degree in composition and music theory from the University of Michigan, where he also earned a master of music in composition. He also earned a bachelor of music degree in composition.

At Pitt-Bradford, he teaches courses in music literature, music theory and musicology, directs and accompanies the Vocal Arts Ensemble, and is the director of the Interdisciplinary Arts program.

He lives in Salamanca, N.Y.
