Moving beyond disciplinary boundaries as a scholar, conductor, and music educator, Eleanor Stubley mobilized her hands to engage both music and language as bodily experience. As she explained, “I am constantly reaching beyond the given as a I strive to renew and revitalize music as a performing art. The striving has developed a unique ability not only to bridge the gap between theory and practice, but, in many ways, to erase that gap altogether through an unswerving focus on the transformative relationship between body and music.”
