Hey there! My name is Kevin. Welcome to my blog!IMG_1913

I am a fourth-year PhD student in musicology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. My current research interests include public musicology, émigré musicians in 1930s–40s Los Angeles, concert programming, public engagement practices, and American musical theater. In addition to my own research, I enjoy teaching the undergraduate music appreciation class at UCSB. Outside of school, I am a horn player, blogger, avid listener of music, and movie buff.

bachflip is my little corner of the Internet to share my love for music history and classical music (although other genres might sneak in from time to time). Through short essays, listening recommendations, and other miscellany, I hope to foster an informative, accessible, and lighthearted take on classical music. (By the way, can you tell that I like composer puns? Really, I could make you a Liszt… *Cue groans.*)
