Mark Davenport teaches music history, survey courses in the Fine Arts Core, and directs the early music ensemble (Collegium Musicum) at Regis University, where he encourages students “to tap life at its source, recognizing how all humans are capable of creative expression.” A performing scholar, Davenport maintains an active calendar of professional concerts and recitals, including performances at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., the South by Southwest Festival and Conference in Austin, TX, and the famous Apollo Theater in Harlem. 

Davenport’s scholarly work, as a result, has been broadly informed by historical performance practice, musicology (early music and American music), art and culture, and education, represented by an extensive and diverse record of journal publications and conference lecture/presentations. His current research project documents the history of the Gatehill Cooperative (an intentional community of artists, musicians, educators and social activists) and gathers much of his wide-ranging interests into one sphere. “By exploring the interconnectedness of music, art and community,” Davenport writes, “where individuals live together in mutual service and fellowship, my aim is to help students discover how they can develop a sense of meaning in their own lives.”
