High Point University Professor Robert HallquistHIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 21, 2012 – The department of music at High Point University recently hired Dr. Robert Hallquist as associate professor of music.

Hallquist will not only teach piano in the Hayworth School of Arts and Sciences, he will also provide accompaniment for the HPU Chapel Choir and HPU vocal, operatic and instrumental performances.

“What an honor to become part of a music department whose faculty so embody a high standard of performance and teaching excellence,” says Hallquist, “It is a pleasure to work with highly motivated students in a caring liberal arts environment.”

Hallquist has preformed previously as a solo and collaborative pianist throughout the U.S., as well as in Europe and Asia. He has also performed live recitals for Georgia Public Television and Chicago classical radio station WFMT.

Prior to joining the music department at HPU, Hallquist spent 16 years teaching at the University of Northern Colorado, as well as nine years at Mercer University in Macon, Ga.
