From the December 9, 2013, Dateline article:
Beth Levy, Department of Music — “She has established herself as one of the leading scholars of American music,” Dean Jessie Ann Owens wrote in nominating her fellow musicologist for a chancellor’s fellowship. Indeed, the American Musicological Society recently presented its Music in American Culture Award to Levy, for her book Frontier Figures: American Music and the Mythology of the American West. A lead review in the Times Literary Supplement called Levy’s scholarship “impeccable,” noting how she “listens carefully, analyzes music with subtlety, and writes about it in nuanced prose.” Colleagues commented on the uniformly high quality of Levy’s lectures and her excellent preparation. She also proved herself an adept administrator, serving for a year as interim director of the UC Davis Humanities Institute (2011–12). Levy holds a doctorate in historical musicology from UC Berkeley (2002) and joined the UC Davis faculty the next year.
