ProfessorDr. Larry Lipkis is the Bertha Mae Starner ’27 and Jay F. Starner Professor of Music and Composer in Residence at Moravian College.  He directs the composition program at the college as well as the early music activities, which include the Collegium Musicum, a Renaissance ensemble; the Monteverdi Ensemble, a madrigal ensemble; and the Baroque ensemble, an instrumental group that specializes in music of the 17th and 18th centuries. He teaches courses in music theory, orchestration, form, and contemporary music, and gives private lessons and practicum courses in composition.

Larry is a member of the Board of Managers of the Bach Choir of Bethlehem (PA) and the creator and director of the Bach Chaconne Project, a collaborative composition and performance workshop for talented high school students.  He has delivered presentations on the topic of “Bach and Rhetoric” and “Bach and Baroque Dance” at two NEH Summer Scholar Institutes in Germany (and a third one in the summer of 2017 in Bethlehem).  He is also a Music Director at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival.

In May 2017, Larry will teach a course entitled “Music of Spain,” which will culminate in a ten-day trip to Cordoba, Seville, and Granada to explore firsthand the rich musical culture of the Andalusian region of Spain.
