I'm pleased to announce that Pete Smucker has accepted a 1-year position as Visiting Assistant Professor at Valparaiso University, Indiana, for the 2012-2013 school year to teach music theory. On his menu of courses will be theory core classes, counterpoint, form, and post-tonal theory. Pete will join his wife, Angela, who is an adjunct instructor in voice at Valparaiso University.
Pete and Angela will be moving to Chesterton, IN (less than 50 miles from Hyde Park), so Pete will still be around the U of C campus from time to time.
Big congratulations, Pete!
