FACULTY PROFILE“I believe that music is an essential aspect of being human, and therefore a potentially powerful arena for advancing peace and the development of humanity. I am profoundly grateful for the opportunity to teach and learn with these dedicated students, and I am equally grateful for the committed support from this university to fostering the arts in our community, this wonderful Performing Arts Center being one manifestation of that support.”
