Northwestern State University Professor of Flute and Coordinator of Graduate Studies in Music Dr. Dennette Derby McDermott was recently asked to co-author an article in the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians. This 29-volume music encyclopedia is the largest and most respected reference work for the subject of music in the world. Each article is written by a recognized scholar in their area of research, and every entry is reviewed by a board and subject to approval.
The New Grove Dictionary was originally published in 1878, the last printed edition was published in 2001, and is now available online by subscription. The article that McDermott co-authored is a result of over 20 years of research on the neglected 18th Century Czech composer, Jiri Čart (Georg Zarth).
