Monday’s (6/27) Business Courier (Cincinnati) reports, “Peter Landgren, a former member of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, will serve as dean of the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music. ‘He is an outstanding musician and administrator and a proud UC alumnus,’ said Santa Jeremy Ono, UC’s senior vice president for academic affairs and provost, in a news release. ‘I was most impressed with his excellent interpersonal skills; his passion for teaching, learning and scholarship; and his love of students. We have hit a ‘home run’ with the appointment of Peter as CCM dean.’ Landgren will begin his new job Sept. 1, pending approval from UC’s board of trustees, according to the release. … While studying at UC, he became principal horn in the Cincinnati Ballet Orchestra, and during his senior year, Landgren started playing for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. In 1995, he released his first solo recording, ‘A Golden Horn,’ and his most recent release is titled ‘Mozart Distilled.’ While still performing with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Landgren began teaching at the Peabody Conservatory of The Johns Hopkins University in the early 1980s. In 2007, he left the Peabody Conservatory to begin working as conservatory director at Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea [Ohio].”
