Grammy Awards spotlight Notre Dame music faculty

Author: Pat Milhizer


At the 66th Grammy Awards, two faculty members in the Department of Music will wait to hear if their project names are called.

Daniel Schlosberg, a professor of the practice for piano, is a nominee for Best Classical Solo Vocal Album, and Stephen Lancaster, an associate professor of the practice for voice, is part of an ensemble nominated for Best Choral Performance.

The event will be a homecoming for Los Angeles-native Schlosberg — who is being recognized for his work as a pianist on 40@40, an art-song collaboration with soprano Laura Strickling. The album is the first installment of 20 pieces of a 40-song vision featuring the work of composers who are diverse in age, background, and location.

“The idea was to have a lot of different voices to foster this sense of community that Laura and I both feel is essential to the genre,” said Schlosberg, who is also director of undergraduate studies for the department.
