Welcome to the Duke University String School!

 

New Director for the Duke University String School!


Jane Hawkins, on behalf of the Duke University String School Director Search Committee: Eric Pritchard, Jane Hawkins, Scott Laird, Jonathan Bagg writes:


It is with great pleasure that we announce the appointment of Erica Shirts as Director of the Duke University String School. Director Shirts' appointment will begin on August 1, 2015. Erica brings to this position her deep knowledge of early string education, her extensive leadership experience and a forward looking perspective (a short biographical sketch of Erica is included below).


The Duke University String School Director Search Committee would like to express our deep gratitude to Stephanie Swisher for her leadership during the transition year. Stephanie's considerable experience as a teacher and administrator have served the DUSS admirably these past months and we look forward to her continued involvement with the school and the invaluable help we know she'll offer the new Director.


Of course, we can't make this announcement without mentioning the leadership provided by the Duke University String School's founder, Mrs. Dorothy Kitchen; without Dorothy's vision and determination this next step in the life of the school would not be possible. Dorothy and Erica have already met as have Stephanie and Erica so you can be assured the running of the School during this transition time will be smooth.


You can expect to hear from Erica quite soon and the DUSS faculty and the Search Committee are looking forward to introducing Erica at Orientation in the Fall.
