Megan England Ward completes MA

Megan England Ward

Alumna Megan England Ward (DIGA Music 2008) completed her Master of Arts in Music at the University of Virginia, with an emphasis in Composition and Computer Technologies. Her thesis paper was entitled “The Divine Divide in Kaija Saariaho’s L’amour de Loin”. She also completed a capstone composition for percussion quartet entitled Incantation. The piece was premiered in February 2010 by the Talujon percussion quartet.

She is now in the process of applying to graduate programs in Library and Information Science. Megan writes, “In taking this path, I plan to advocate computer literacy and the free and equal access to information. I hope to specialize in youth services and public library systems.”

Megan remains active as a laptop performer, collaborating with members of the Charlottesville experimental music scene. She also does occasional VJ gigs with her husband Kevin Ward (DIGA Art 2008).

Congrats Megan! Best of luck on the next phase!
