Former Eastman School of Music director Robert Freeman, musicologist Robert Winter, and Paul R. Judy, the founder of Eastman’s Paul R. Judy Center for Innovation and Research, will be visiting Eastman September 20 through 22, presenting three public lectures and panels for the Eastman and Rochester community. Topics to be discussed include: The Future of Classical Music in America; Teaching in a Truly Digital Age; and Critical Challenges Facing Musical Leaders of Tomorrow.

 

All three are scholars and visionaries in their field, and together with several Eastman faculty members will lead a three-day experience hosted by Eastman’s Institute for Music Leadership. Jim Doser, Director of the Institute for Music Leadership, comments, “These three leaders continue to inspire cutting edge thinking and create substantive and lasting changes in the field of music and music education. This is an exceptional opportunity for our community to interact with them.”

 

Joining this group for the panel discussion on Saturday will be Curtis Long, CEO and President of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra; Rachel Roberts, Director of Eastman’s Master of Arts in Music Leadership Degree Program; and Jamal J. Rossi, Joan and Martin Messenger Dean of the Eastman School of Music.

 

Robert Freeman has led several of America’s finest music schools – including the Eastman School of Music, where he served as director for more than two decades. From 1996 through 1999, Freeman served as president of the New England Conservatory, then as dean of the College of Fine Arts at The University of Texas at Austin until 2006. A Steinway artist, Freeman has performed in concerts and recitals throughout North America and Europe, and has made several recordings, mainly with colleagues from Eastman and the University of Texas. As a musicologist, his publications have focused on 18th-century music history and on the history and future of musical education. His most recent book is The Crisis of Classical Music In America (Rowman and Littlefield, 2014).

 

Paul R. Judy is founder of the Symphony Orchestra Institute and the Paul R. Judy Center for Innovation and Research at Eastman, former President of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Board, and Chair of the Chicago Philharmonic Society.

 

Musicologist and author Robert Winter is Distinguished Professor of Music at UCLA and creator of the digital learning resource Music In The Air.
