Tiffany Ng Receives Henry Russell Award

A big congratulations to BCNM alum Tiffany Ng for being recognized as a Henry Russell Lecturer for 2022!

The Henry Russell Lectureship is the University of Michigan's highest honor for active faculty. It is awarded to faculty members with "exceptional achievements in research, scholarship or creative endeavors, as well as an outstanding record of distinguished teaching, mentoring and service to U-M and the wider community". As an assitant professor of music at University of Michigan's School of Music, Theatre & Dance, Tiffany is one of four recipients this year.

From the article:

Ng is an international leader in carillon who inspires students, faculty colleagues, composers, musicians and audiences around the world with her commitment to reimagining, enlarging and diversifying the repertoire for carillon.

Ng has been with U-M since 2015. She has given recitals throughout North America, Europe and Australia, and is the most active performer of electroacoustic carillon music in North America.

Through her editing and publication of musical scores, Ng has sparked a global movement to diversify carillon repertoire. A passionate advocate of new music, she has commissioned and premiered 60 new works, including the first commissioned carillon works by Black men and women, and much of the world’s electroacoustic carillon repertoire by women composers.
