Scott Klein, professor and chair of the department of English, has been named artistic director of the Secrest Artists Series.
Klein has been deeply involved with the Secrest Series for many years, serving on the artist selection committee and offering introductory lectures. He worked closely with Lillian Shelton during her 28 years as former director.
Klein brings a wide range of experience and enthusiasm to the Series and to the performing arts, particularly classical music and jazz, but also music, theater and dance.
Klein’s academic work crosses between literature and music, film and the visual arts. He has frequently performed as a pianist, most notably with Cambridge Footlights while at Cambridge University, including four-person performances in 1982 at Riverside Studios in London with Emma Thompson, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie.
Samantha Perrotta, the events and special projects coordinator in the provost’s office, will provide logistical support to the Series.
Provost Rogan Kersh also expresses his deep gratitude to Stewart Carter and Peter Kairoff, professors of music, for their assistance in the selection process.
