Cincinnati Conservatory names new dean

Posted on: June 12, 2018

“Stanley E. Romanstein has been announced as the new dean of the University of Cincinnati’s Conservatory of Music, his alma mater,” writes Susan Elliott in Friday’s (6/8) MusicalAmerica.com (subscription required). “Romanstein, 62, holds the title of ‘professor of practice/music and the arts’ at the newly opened Georgia State University’s Creative Media Institute. He is listed as ‘limited faculty’; he is also a consultant with BLJackson Associates. In the performing arts realm, he is perhaps best remembered for his four-year tenure at the helm of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, two of which were marred by musician lock-outs and general labor strife. He resigned in the fall of 2014…. His previous jobs were president and CEO of the Minnesota Humanities Center, director of development at the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota, executive director of the Baltimore School for the Arts and Baltimore School for the Arts Foundation. He was also chair of the Department of Music at St. Lawrence University. In Cincinnati, Romanstein succeeds interim dean Bruce McClung, in the job since 2016, when Peter Landgren left to become president of the University of Cincinnati Foundation.”
