Bryan Parkhurst, assistant professor of music theory and aural skills, has been honored with the Emerging Scholar Award by the Society for Music Theory. The society annually recognizes publications of the best books and articles on music-theoretical topics.

The award was presented at the society's annual meeting in San Antonio, TX on November 3, 2018 recognizing Parkhurst's article, “Making a Virtue of Necessity: Schenker and Kantian Teleology,” published in the April 2017 issue of the Journal for Music Theory.

The society's review committee praised Parkhurst's in-depth study of aesthetic and philosophical underpinnings of the theories of Heinrich Schenker as "a rigorous philosophical inquiry into the ideal of 'musical science'."
