Dr. Gregory Camp
Dr. Gregory Camp has recently been awarded his DPhil by The Queen's College, Oxford University, studying the performance and reception history of Monteverdi's operas in the twentieth century. His work focuses on how opera, especially when recorded, is nested within the communities in which it takes place. Originally from Denver, Colorado, he graduated summa cum laude from The George Washington University with a double major in International Affairs and Music, writing his honors dissertation on the performance of Gregorian chant from the St Gall codex. He then went to Oxford for an MSt in Musicology, studying the modern reception history of Monteverdi’s 1610 Vespers. Gregory is also active as a performer, having sung in the Queen's College chapel choir, which he also served as librarian, and is the founder of the seventeenth-century music ensemble Selva Claudiana. He has also served the Queen's College graduate community as treasurer and as president of the Queen's Middle Common Room.
