Jason Geary Appointed to University of Maryland Post

A respected musicologist and conservatory-trained pianist whose work has been recognized by a Fulbright grant and a fellowship at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton has been appointed director of the School of Music at the University of Maryland College Park.

Jason Geary, who has focused his research on the music of 19th-century Germany and its role in European cultural and intellectual history, previously served as an associate professor and associate dean for graduate studies, equity and inclusion for the School of Music, Theatre and Dance at the University of Michigan, where he was a faculty member for 12 years.

“The School of Music at the University of Maryland has an excellent reputation both nationally and internationally,” Geary said. “I am eager to help build upon the many successes of this already dynamic and distinguished institution.”

Geary, author of “The Politics of Appropriation: German Romantic Music and the Ancient Greek Legacy,” holds a bachelor’s degree in piano performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, a master’s degree from the University of Michigan, and a doctorate in musicology from Yale University.

Geary succeeds Robert “Bob” Gibson, who served for more than a decade as the university’s School of Music director.

“We’re thrilled to have Jason join us as the next director for the School of Music,” said Bonnie Thornton Dill, dean of UMD’s College of Arts and Humanities. “Jason has the knowledge and experience to take the school to the next level, making it a national leader among schools for music at public research institutions.”
