PULLMAN, Wash.–Washington State University music faculty member Charles Argersinger has been named 1997 Composer of the Year by the Washington State Music Teachers Association.
His “Dream Sequence,” a major work for solo piano, was commissioned last fall by the association. It was premiered earlier this year by WSU faculty member Gerald Berthiaume during a joint conference of the Washington and Oregon music teachers associations in Portland.
Argersinger, a member of the faculty since 1988, is director of the university’s annual New Music Festival and coordinates the theory and composition courses for the School of Music and Theatre Arts.
