Recent alum Shayna Silverstein accomplishes rare double feat

Dear Friends and Colleagues of the Department of Music--

Please join me in extending hearty congratulations to Shayna Silverstein (Ph.D. 2012), who has accomplished a rare double this year: she has recently accepted an appointment as Assistant Professor in the ethnomusicology program of the School of Music of the University of Maryland, College Park and she is the recipient of a prestigious Mellon Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Penn Humanities Forum at the University of Pennsylvania for the 2013-14 academic year. (She will join Maryland's faculty for the 2014-15 academic year.) Both are wonderful opportunities for Shayna and mark an important new phase in her career.

All the best
