Day O'Connell, Sarah

Sarah Day-O’Connell is associate professor and associate chair of the Music Department at Skidmore College. She previously taught music history and ethnomusicology at Knox College, and at Valparaiso University as a Lilly Postdoctoral Fellow in Christ College. She is the author of several articles and book chapters on eighteenth-century music in its cultural context, and she currently serves as co-editor of the Cambridge Haydn Encyclopedia.  Her teaching interests center on interdisciplinary ways of thinking about music, combining musical analysis with interpretation of literary, visual, and material culture in order to explore how musical activity, especially singing, reflects and shapes broader social concerns – in particular about identity, politics, faith, and healing.
