April 06, 2010

Mount Union College's Dr. James Perone, associate professor of music, has been contracted to write a book, "Music and American Counterculture" for Greenwood Press of Westport, Connecticut for its "Music in American Culture" series.


Perone's most recent publication is "Louis Moreau Gottschalk: A Bio-Bibliography," which has been published recently by Greenwood Press. "Songs of the Vietnam Conflict," by Perone, was published in 2001.

"Music of the Counterculture Era will be aimed at high school and college audiences," said Perone. "I will be analyzing the era 1960 to 1975, and looking at the music in relation to the various movements of that time period."

Perone joined the staff at Mount Union College in 1994. He teaches "music in America," music theory and clarinet. Perone received a bachelor's degree in music education from Capital University and master's degrees in clarinet performance and music theory and a doctorate degree in music theory from the State University of New York in Buffalo.
