Music professor Patrick Freer spent last semester as a visiting professor at the Universität Mozarteum Salzburg (Austria) for the Fall 2018 semester. Freer worked with faculty colleagues at the Mozarteum around his focus on teaching adolescent boy singers during the voice change. As a result of his time abroad, Freer will contribute to a large-scale research project of the Vienna Choir Boys Foundation that will use findings from neuroscience research to inform an Alternate Reality platform for improving pedagogical training for future choral teacher-conductors.
