Remarks, CMS Annual Business Meeting, 2019

It is an honor to serve as President of the College Music Society and I thank our membership for your many contributions to music in higher education. Part of what makes our Society unique and indeed what attracted me as a member so many years ago, is our profile as an umbrella organization for all of the music disciplines.  CMS conferences, committees, publications and webinars have been my entrée to ways of thinking about and in music across a wide spectrum.  I have remained in the Society because of the connections I have forged with colleagues.  Being a member of CMS provides me of a wider view of our discipline – and I appreciate that deeply.



Open Enrollment Begins November 1!
