Laura Gray has studied music from coast to coast, earning her Bachelor’s degree at Western, Master’s at UBC, and PhD at Yale. Her interest in Music History was sparked studying Bach’s St. Matthew Passion, delving into the music and looking at each layer and its deeper meaning. 

Her areas of research focus on British music culture between the wars, the music of the Finnish composer Sibelius, and landscape and music. Laura teaches courses on music of the 17th, 18th, and 20th centuries, opera history, seminars on landscape and music, aesthetics and research.

In her spare time Laura likes to read, spend time with friends, cook, and travel. Some places she has visited include the Black Forrest in Germany, the UK, Italy, Finland, Spain and anywhere warm during the winter months.
