Frank Glazer, Artist-in-Residence, before coming to Bates was Professor of Piano on the Artist Faculty of the Eastman School of Music. A concert pianist, he has performed throughout the world and played with leading orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Glazer gives frequent solo recitals on campus, as well as performances with the Bates College Orchestra and with students, faculty, and guest artists.
James Parakilas, a music scholar with a doctorate from Cornell University, teaches courses on music history and culture, music theory, and performance. He plays the piano, often in chamber groups with students and colleagues, and coaches student chamber groups. His scholarly publications include the books Ballads Without Words: Chopin and the Tradition of the Instrumental Ballade (Amadeus Press, 1992), Piano Roles: 300 Years of Life with the Piano (Yale University Press, 2000; paperback, 2002), and the textbook The Story of Opera (forthcoming from W. W. Norton). In 2010-2011, under a Phillips Faculty Research Fellowship, he studied recent research in psychology, neuroscience and other fields that is prompting new understandings of the nature of music.
