The School of Music is honored to host a celebration in honor of esteemed emeritus piano professor Robert Jordan on his 70th birthday.

The event includes a concert, reception and dinner, and is highlighted by the announcement of a splendid, new endowment in his name made possible by one of his appreciative students, with additional contributions from many, many others.

Robert Jordan joined the faculty in 1980 and retired in 2004. With degrees from the Eastman School and the Juilliard School, he has appeared with orchestras in New York City, around the United States and in Europe. He is a Fulbright Scholar and a recipient of the Kasling Award.

Mr. Jordan touched the lives of thousands of students. As a teacher and pianist, he has always been committed to the art of music-making and the development of young talent.

In appreciation of Professor Jordan’s talent and influence, piano alumni, former colleagues and friends have responded to a challenge to raise funds in his name to establish an endowment for piano scholarships and student enrichment. The fund will be used to grow and develop the School of Music’s piano program, promote student diversity and international initiatives, and generate discretionary resources that can bring special events to campus which will enhance learning.

Jordan’s recital will feature works by Bach-Busoni, D. Scarlatti, Chopin, Debussy and Liszt. Tickets will be available for the concert only, or packaged for the entire event.
