Making Music: The History of Duquesne Universitys Mary Pappert School of Music
by Dr. Joseph F. Rishel and Helen K. Rishel, Duquesne University of the Holy Spirit
Experience the rich history of the Mary Pappert School of Music, one of the most prestigious music schools in the nation.
In 1926, Duquesne University, a Catholic college in Pittsburgh, humbly founded its music school with a handful of students. The institution quickly grew to become the premier, internationally recognized school that it is today with celebrated faculty, as well as courses serving both undergraduates and graduates interested in music education, performance, therapy, technology, and sacred music.
The Mary Pappert School of Music provides musical education that connects the broad spectrum of historical and current practices; and in promoting the relationship between theory and practice, prepares professionals who will be the leaders in the musical culture of the 21st century.
The dynamic story of Making Music will be of interest to alumni, students, faculty, parents and relatives, donors, friends of Duquesne, and anyone interested in music in higher education.
