About Me:
K. Christian McGuire is a musicologist, performer, and instructor with a dual specialty in 21st century electric bass and 12th-century liturgical manuscripts of the Rhineland. As an electric bassist with over 25 years of experience he has played and recorded in every conceivable setting. His current research on bass is focused on tone and technique as applied to live performance in modern symphonic/electronic orchestration and musical theatre. As a medieval musicologist he is best known for his work on the Symphonia of Hildegard von Bingen, the development of Cistercian and Premonstratensian liturgies in women's monastic communities, and medieval music performance practice and reconstruction.

Prior to Augsburg, McGuire taught early music and popular music history at the McNally-Smith College of Music where he co-designed the NASM approved curricula for their B.A. programs. In addition to his performances and recordings as electric bassist & vocalist, McGuire has served as musicologist for the Minnesota High School Music Listening Contest, guest lecturer on Music paleography at the Hill Monastic Library and Museum in Collegeville, MN, and most recently as organizer and chair of the "Martin Luther in Medieval Context" session at the 45th International Medieval Congress in Kalamazoo, MI. He currently serves as Treasurer and webmaster for the International Society of Hildegard von Bingen Studies and volunteers as Latin language tutor and fencing coach at Nova Classical Academy in St. Paul, MN where he resides with his wife, two children, and two cats.
