A Musical Analysis of the Senior Recital Repertoire of Gavin R. Grove 

By gavin grove


Gavin Grove is currently a senior majoring in both music education and clarinet performance at the Tell School of Music at Millersville University of Pennsylvania. He proudly hails from Akron, Pennsylvania. Music has always been an important staple in Gavin’s life, as his parents exposed him to the arts at a young age. During his time at Millersville, he has served as the President of the Millersville University Single Reed Society. Gavin has also served as a Woodwind Technician and Alumni Night Coordinator for the Ephrata High School Marching Unit. Outside of music, Gavin is interested in golf, politics, and all things Pittsburgh sports. In the future, Grove aspires to find a job as a music educator and hopes to further his education in a master’s program. Done in coordination with the Millersville University Honors College, Grove’s undergraduate thesis attempts to provide a unique perspective into select clarinet compositions, with a particular emphasis on composer background, a formal analysis of the works and the experimental nature of clarinet composition in the twentieth century.
