Abstract

This document contains a collection of articles, reviews, profiles and programme notes written during an internship in music criticism. The diversity of these pieces reflects the varied nature of the terms music critic and music criticism, and the many roles a critic must play in writing for different audiences and numerous venues. The introduction to this portfolio outlines the details of my internship and discusses my perspective and goals as a critic. The sections I - V contain pieces which have been published by The Hamilton Spectator and Opera Canada, as well as two pieces which have been submitted for publication in the Spectator and Current Musicology. Section VI contains programme notes written for the McMaster University Celebrity Series and for Symphony Hamilton.
