BMus (Manitoba), MA, PhD (British Columbia)
Following completion of a BMus degree in composition at the University of Manitoba, Charles Morrison completed MA and PhD degrees in music theory at the University of British Columbia, where he studied with Wallace Berry. His main areas of research included aesthetics, perception of 18th- and 19-the century music, and analysis of 20th-century, especially that of Belá Bartók. He has presented papers at national and international conferences. Morrison has published articles on Ligeti, Bartók, and Schoenberg in Perspectives of New Music, Music Theory Spectrum, Studia Musicologica, and Music Analysis.He collaborated with the Penderecki String Quartet during the 1996-97 concert season at WLU and in 2000 and 2001 at the Festival of the Sound in Parry Sound, Ontario, presenting a six-part lecture recital series on the string quartets of Belá Bartók. Morrison’s current research explores the interface between philosophical and theological aesthetics, as well as the concept of the temporal present, as manifest in musical perception and theological-contemplative contexts.
