BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — The Indiana University Jacobs School of Music is pleased to announce that Dale Clevenger, principal horn of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra for the past 47 years, will join its Brass Department faculty full time as professor of practice in the fall of 2013, pending approval by the Trustees of Indiana University.
At the school, Clevenger will join a department that includes Myron Bloom (former principal horn of the Cleveland Orchestra,) Jeff Nelsen (former member of the Canadian Brass) and early music horn specialist Richard Seraphinoff.
“After one of the most remarkable tenures of any symphonic musician of our time, Indiana University is thrilled to welcome Dale Clevenger to its faculty,” said Gwyn Richards, dean of the Jacobs School.
