Three compositions by Jonathan C. Santore, associate professor of music and chair of the department of music, theatre and dance (MTD), were published in 2005—all have strong connections to PSU. The Insoluble Persists, for trombone and piano, was written for former and current MTD faculty James and Constance Chesebrough. Rondo Ostinato, for brass quintet, was written for MTD alumna Elisa Curren, who went on to complete an M.M. in trumpet performance at Illinois State University. Both were published by Gold Branch Music. God’s World, on a text by Edna St. Vincent Millay, was published by Walton Music. This piece was written for the New Hampshire Master Chorale, which is conducted by PSU Professor Dan Perkins and for which Santore is composer in residence.
