submitted by kipperj@augsburg.edu

URGO is happy to welcome Solveig Mebust, a 2009 Augsburg graduate in Music Education and Vocal and Instrumental, to our staff as Undergraduate Research, Graduate School and Fellowships Specialist. Amy Cosimini, who worked in our office over the summer, accepted a tenure track position at St. Olaf.

While at Augsburg, Solveig completed an URGO summer research project evaluating the music historical canon through analysis of pieces included in music history textbooks under the mentorship of Dr. Merilee Klemp. She also was URGO’s first student worker.

Currently, Solveig is writing her dissertation on women’s music activism in Norway, 1870-1920 on route to her PhD in Historical Musicology from the University of MN. During 2016-2017, Solveig spent the year in Norway on a Fulbright Research Award.

We are pleased to welcome her back to Augsburg and look forward to the many contributions she will make to URGO and Augsburg students.
