Date of Defense 2011-01-21 Availability unrestricted AbstractThe primary focus of this document is to provide performers and musical scholars
with an analysis of Lee Hoiby’s musical composition I Have A Dream. The
opening of this document will be biographical, including facts regarding family lineage,
education, positions held, general aspects of his personality and significant influence
regarding equal rights. Biographical information will span from Dr. Martin Luther King,
Jr.’s birth (January 15, 1929) to the March on Washington (August 28, 1963). Next, I will
outline the methodology and techniques Dr. King used in leading the movement. Literary
texts written by King, Jr. and other influential writers will be referenced to discover how
and why he became such a monumental figure in the face of civil rights in America.
I will then focus exclusively on Mr. Hoiby. I will highlight Mr. Hoiby’s
biographical information. Then, I will focus on general compositional techniques used by
Mr. Hoiby in his solo vocal works. Included will be musical examples from I Have A
Dream and other selected works to assist the reader in understanding the music further.
Finally, I will present a textual and musical analysis of I Have A Dream. Conventional
theoretical techniques of musical analysis will be used to decipher the harmonic language
used in the composition. The document will conclude with a bibliography and
appendices. Reference material at the conclusion of the document will include the text of
I Have A Dream. There will also be a list of vocal works composed by Mr. Hoiby, as well
as an e-mail correspondence giving the author permission to use musical examples.
