Douglas Lowry Steps Down as Eastman Dean

Share This:

Douglas Lowry, the Joan and Martin Messinger Dean of the Eastman School of Music at the University of Rochester, has resigned for health reasons. The Board of Trustees named him the Joan and Martin Messinger Dean Emeritus and awarded him an honorary Doctor of Music degree, which was presented to him September 23. Lowry led the biggest architectural transformation in the Eastman School’s history, the renovation of Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre and the construction of the east wing, with state-of-the-art performance, rehearsal and teaching spaces, including Hatch Recital Hall. As a composer, Lowry’s works have been commissioned and premiered by the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra (his “Geo” opened Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre under the baton of Christopher Seaman in October of 2009), the Cincinnati Symphony, the Louisville Orchestra, the Eastman School Symphony, the Eastman Wind Ensemble, the Thornton USC Symphony, and others.
