Maura Sugg is a 1st year PhD student in Musicology. Originally from Downingtown, PA, she earned her BA in Liberal Arts from St. John’s College (Annapolis, MD) and MA in Musicology from Indiana University (Bloomington, IN). From her academic and performance experiences in both programs, she developed a love for Renaissance polyphony. Her interests lie in the interpretive lenses for sacred polyphony that inform how listeners, then and now, perceive and find meaning in the music. She has presented at the Newberry Center for Renaissance Studies’ Multidisciplinary Graduate Student Conference, as well as at Indiana University’s Musicology Colloquium Series.
