Professor's work to be performed at presidential inauguration
Professor Browne regularly collaborated with the late composer Stephen Paulus; they met when Paulus was a student at the University. Their post-Holocaust oratorio To Be Certain of the Dawn was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in music by the Minnesota Orchestra. He has also worked as a librettist with the composers John Foley, S.J., Carolyn Jennings, Juliana Hall, Tim Takach and Craig Hella Johnson, with whom he recently collaborated on Considering Matthew Shepard. Browne's most recent poetry collection, The Voices, was published in 2015.
