Marilyn L. McCoy completed her doctorate at the University of Chicago with a dissertation entitled 'Gustav Mahler's Path to the New Music: Musical Time and Modernism.' Her research explores the ways in which Mahler evokes a sense of timelessness in his music, a compositional strategy which plays an important part in many of the songs on this program. Professor McCoy is much in demand as a concert lecturer. She has had a long association with the MahlerFest in Boulder, Colorado, where she has served as pre-concert lecturer and symposium participant since 2002. In February 2012 she gave several lectures at Disney Hall as part of the Los Angeles Philharmonic's 'Mahler Project,' led by Gustavo Dudamel. She has spoken at Carnegie Hall and the Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center, and at the Bard Festivals 'Berg and His World' (2010) and 'Mahler and His World' (2002). Other speaking engagements include lectures for the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Berkshire Choral Festival, and the Ravinia Festival of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Though primarily a 'Mahler scholar,' she served as Assistant Archivist at the Arnold Schoenberg Institute in Los Angeles for the last 3 years of its existence (1995-98).
