Two Franklin & Marshall College faculty members in the Department of Music – Doris Hall-Gulati and Jessica Beebe – have received 2019 Grammy nominations for albums on which they performed.
Both albums were nominated in the "Best Choral Performance" category. Hall-Gulati, a clarinetist and one of F&M’s artists-in-residence, is featured on The Crossing's album, “Lansing McLoskey: Zealot Canticles," directed by Donald Nally. Hall-Gulati performs with a string quartet and a 24-voice choir.
Beebe, adjunct assistant professor of music voice, sings with The Clarion Choir on the album, “Alexander Kastalsky: Memory Eternal (1917),” conducted by Steven Fox. This is the second nomination for Clarion, and the third nomination for The Crossing, which won a Grammy last year.
The 61st Annual Grammy Awards ceremony is Feb. 10, 2019.
