Director, Global Arts Performance Initiatives
Through a partnership of leading cultural arts institutions and programs of the University of Illinois in the colleges of Fine and Applied Arts and Liberal Arts and Sciences, Jason Finkelman was appointed Director of Global Arts Performance Initiatives in August 2012. With established programming that includes the Sudden Sound Concert Series, Global Transfer Afterglow Concerts, and the AsiaLENS film series, this new position consolidates Finkelman’s distinct perspective as a curator of genre-blurring music and international performing arts, and allows for the development of expanded programming and engagement.
For Robert E. Brown Center for World Music, Finkelman programs special events and lectures, assists with gamelan performances and maintains our events calendar. He also enjoys working collaboratively with Spurlock Museum to present international music and performance at WorldFest and assisting in performance programs related to special exhibits.
