ODU Faculty Trio examining William Stoney score

William Shannon Stoney received his music education at Harvard and  Yale Universities, and received his Ph.D. at the University of Iowa. After a short tenure as Chairman of the Department of Music at Hampton University during the early 1960's, Stoney devoted himself to university teaching and composition until his retirement in 1985. As one of the first Hampton composers not connected with the choir, Stoney wrote song cycles and instrumental works rather than focusing on works for the choir. Also, he was a founding member and long time president of the Tidewater Composers League.
