Dean Mark McCoy Discusses J.S. Bach with Investor's Business Daily

January 22, 2012

Mark McCoy 011ac"Though his music is incredibly intelligent and complex, it speaks in profound ways to people who have no earthly idea what is going on musically," Mark McCoy, dean of the DePauw University School of Music, says of Johann Sebastian Bach. McCoy is quoted in an Investor's Business Daily look at the composer, profiled in the publication's "Leaders & Success" column.

Dr. McCoy says of Bach, "He may be the only major composer not associated with a major cultural center or court. He spent his life in backwater Germany. (And yet) he continually tops all lists of DSC 0690agreat musicians and composers."

McCoy, a noted educator, composer and conductor, came to the DePauw University School of Music in August 2011. He previously served as chair of music at Shepherd University in West Virginia. Learn more here.
