Randolph Coleman to retire
Randolph Coleman, a composer and longtime professor at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music (43 years!) is retiring at the end of the semester, according to this article I spotted in the Oberlin Review, which is apparently the student newspaper. It's a well-done article; I'm not familiar with Coleman's music but apparently he is kind of a recovered modernist.
In the article, he describes having roots in late modernism, then adds, "This was an aesthetic cul-de-sac burdening my generation until the late '60s when the bubble finally exploded. Unfortunately many of us got trapped there, never to evolve even as it became evident to almost everyone that, as a culture, we had moved on."
