Ensembles History: Music of Thailand Ensemble

The Music of Thailand Ensemble was formed during the 1964-65 academic year, when the course Music 45M/Music 145M (Music of Thailand) was offered for the first time. David Morton, a tenure-track professor in the Music Department from 1962-85, was the only instructor of the course.
