We seek a composer of international stature who will be an effective educator and play a leadership role in our undergraduate and graduate composition programs, as well as in fostering and promoting post-graduate research.

In particular, the Corwin Chair helps to coordinate the Music Department's composition program with the teaching of composition in the Media Arts and Technology Program, and in the College of Creative Studies. It is anticipated that the Corwin Chair will enrich the UCSB community by recruiting graduate students, and by bringing distinguished guest artists and researchers for performances, lectures, and short residencies.
