Dr. Forsberg's scholarly work focuses on the early classical symphony and concerto. In addition to co-authoring a volume in the series The Symphony 1720-1840, she has articles in The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, Die Musik in Geschichte und Gegenwart, Current Musicology, Notes: Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association, and Haiti-Observateur. A lead article on her rediscovery of the symphonies of Joseph Camerloher was published in Musik in Bayern: Halbjahresschrift der Gesellschaft fÙr Bayerische Musikgeschichte. A chapter on Joseph Camerloher and Placidus von Camerloher will appear later this year in The Symphonic Repertoire, Volume I: The Eighteenth-Century Symphony. Currently treasurer of the Mozart Society of America, she has served on the board of The Society for Eighteenth-Century Music and was chair of the Fourth Biennial Meeting held at St. Francis College in 2010. Since 2003 she has participated as a Speaker in the Humanities program, sponsored by the New York Council for the Humanities. Her lecture on Johann Sebastian Bach was featured during both the NY State Humanities Month and the first NYC Early Music Festival. In 2010 she received a Merit of Honor Award from the University of Utah Alumni Association for distinguished professional achievements and service. A Woodrow Wilson fellow, she carried out research in Europe funded by a German Academic Exchange Fellowship.
