Counterpoint is published annually by the College of Music at the University of North Texas to highlight the research, scholarship, and creative activity of our faculty, staff, students, and alumni.
Correction for the 2009 edition of Counterpoint: on page 35 the student identified on the far right is Esra Celikten, not Mihaela Čuljak.
