About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I am currently being archived at the Sousa Archives, University of Illinois under the name Shirley Meyer Blankenship. I was the first woman to receive a doctorate of musical arts degree in composition from the University of Illinois. At this time, I wish to contribute my skills as a harpist and composer to the creation of new harp music-either solo, ensemble or symphonic parts. I am also a violinist and pianist. In 2010, I completed the recording of 100 piano pieces in a collection by composer Robert Martin entitled: Mt. Fuji. In 2008, I recorded The Owl and the Pussycat for flute and harp, also by Martin, at Krannert Center for the Performing Arts. This recording is included in an album entitled: Metamorphosis.
