Composer/Lawyer Derrick Wang Joins the Peabody Institute To Teach Law and Music

Composer and attorney Derrick Wang ("Scalia/Ginsburg") will join the Peabody Institute in the fall to teach law and music, both on the undergraduate and graduate levels, according to the Institute.   He received his B.A. from Harvard and his M.M. in music from Yale. He received his j.D. from the University of Maryland School of Law. 

Mr. Wang's opera made its premiere in 2015 at the Castleton Festival and got rave reviews. Its libretto has footnotes (befitting a lawyer) and is published at 38 Columbia Journal of Law and the Arts. Justices Ginsburg and Scalia contributed prefaces to the piece.
