Assistant Professor of music William Robin contributed six essays to "Glass at 80," a publication in conjunction with an international festival of performances celebrating the 80th birthday of the composer Philip Glass.

"Glass at 80 features the extraordinary impact Philip Glass has had upon the musical and intellectual life of his time. Glass’s associations, personal and professional, with leading rock, pop and world music artists date back to the 1960s. February 1 – 10, 2017, in celebration of Glass’s 80th birthday, we will host and honor this iconic American artist through an international festival of performances across the spectrum of his prolific creative output and diverse artistic collaborations."
