Dr. Deborah Nemko, associate professor of music, has been elected to the College Music Board. She will begin the term in January after completing the term of another member who had to step down. "Your past leadership is highly valued by the Society, and we all eagerly anticipate your continued leadership for CMS in your role as Board Member of Performance," wrote CMS President David Brian Williams. The 9,000-member society is a consortium of college, conservatory, university and independent musicians and scholars interested in all disciplines of music. Dr. Nemko traveled to China at the end of April to perform at the Shanghai Cultural Center with violinist Mei-Mei Wei, as well as do a residency at Shanghai Normal University as a visiting scholar.
