CU Denver Music Professor Judith Coe...
Resident Artist/Composer at Indiana University of Pennsylvania
Dr. Judith Coe, Associate Professor of Music at the University of Colorado Denver, is quite busy with her scholarly endeavors. She served as the Resident Artist/Composer at Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s Tenth Festival of Women Composers in February, 2014.
Coe led a pre-festival curriculum workshop for IUP music faculty, the Dean of Fine Arts, and the Provost, “An Entrepreneurial Ethos for Training Musicians in the 21st Century,” that focused on possibilities for traditional IUP programs to re-envision pedagogy in order to address industry realities, the commercial media market, honoring tradition while finding creative ways to interface with pop music performance practices, and crafting a hybrid design for training 21st-century musicians.
She worked with festival attendees, IUP students, and students from the Pennsylvania Music Education Association (PMEA) in three songwriting workshops – “Songwriting and Storytelling for Youthful Spirits,” “Pop Music and World Beat Grooves,” and “Pop Music and Fusion – DJs, Rap, and Electronica” and performed an original art song composition for voice and piano, “Her Vision in the Wood” with IUP Professor of Music Dr. Susan Wheatley, on the festival opening concert, “Love Songs and New Directions by Women Singers and Composers”. Coe performed with selected IUP Music and Interdisciplinary Fine Arts majors on an evening concert that included her original pop and Celtic-infused songs and songs by Aoife O’Donovan, Judy Collins, Joni Mitchell, Souad Massi, Annie Lennox, Eivør Pálsdóttir, Sarah Jarosz, Karan Casey and Neko Case. Coe also premiered “Old Silver Tune,” a bluegrass song co-written with one of her CU Denver commercial voice students, up and coming singer/songwriter Kara O’Brien.
Coe’s Keynote Address, “Blasket Island Songbook — A Documentary Film and Album Project about Home, Place, and Identity in Ireland,” shared stories, film clips from video interviews, photographs and original songs about the life of Martin Kearney, a Blasket Island native. Coe weaves a magical story about Kearney immigrating to Springfield, MA as a young man and the struggles he faced in his marriage and family life while grappling with epilepsy.
Coe’s interest in Ireland and Irish music began as a teenager and was strengthened with a trip to Ireland in 2000 to attend the International Summer School of Music and Dance in the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at the University of Limerick. That study, work, and building of professional networks and friendships led to Coe teaching her first class at CU Denver on Irish music. She won a US Scholar’s Fulbright award in 2006-2007, an experience which Coe says was magical and transformative. Later, she was appointed as a Fulbright Ambassador, 2010-2012 (and now a Fulbright Ambassador Emerita).
CU Denver Honors and Leadership Program
Coe is teaching, for the third time, a CU Denver Honors and Leadership Program course on Irish Music, Peace, Politics and Popular Culture. She was recently appointed as the College Music Society Ambassador to Ireland. Her Fulbright work and subsequent work she completed during her 2011 sabbatical as a Visiting Scholar in the Ionad an Bhlascaoid Mhóir/The Blasket Centre in Dunquin, Co. Kerry, Ireland and during a Blasket Gathering event in Dunquin in May 2013 figure largely in Coe’s UHL honors teaching and mentoring activities as well as her applied singing/songwriting teaching in the Music & Entertainment Industry Studies Department.
