On February 21, I announced the next chapter in my life will take me to the Manhattan School of Music. Effective, July 1, my tenure as Executive Vice President and Provost begins. I am deeply honored to join this remarkable conservatory (one of only 7 independent conservatories in the US). I am particularly excited to arrive in July as MSM will celebrate is centennial in 2018-19. I eagerly look forward to working with the world-class faculty and staff and helping to lead, steward and serve MSM as it embarks on its second century.

My tenure at the Cleveland Institute of Music provided a broad array of rewarding experiences, and I will dearly miss the students as well as my CIM and Cleveland community, friends, and colleagues. While the time may be just a few short years, the connections and friendships will last far longer than our time together.

I look forward to the next chapter of my life, working at one of the premier American conservatories, and living in one of the best cities in the world!
