Now at Copland House

Composer, Christopher Hopkins

CHRISTOPHER HOPKINS is director of the Center for Excellence in the Arts and Humanities and Associate Professor of Music at Iowa State University of Science and Technology. His special interests include composing with dialectics of historical musical styles, electroacoustic music, and experimental integration of composition, instrument design, and graphical notation (including 3D virtual reality). He is also a performer of Renaissance and Baroque music for the viola da gamba. His compositions have been performed in major festivals in Athens, Basel, Grenoble, Hong Kong, Honolulu, Melbourne, New York, Tanglewood, Toronto, Vienna, and Z├╝rich, as well as in numerous concerts in across Belgium, Canada, England, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and the United States. As a young orchestral musician with the Lincoln Symphony Orchestra and Nebraska Chamber Orchestra, Hopkins performed two concerts with Aaron Copland conducting (including a performance of Lincoln Portrait with Walter Cronkite). He cites conversations with Copland during rehearsal breaks as the incitement to begin composing.
