Cornish College of the Arts announced that Kent Devereaux has been appointed the new chair of the music department.

Previously, the composer and stage director served as vice president and dean at Kaplan University, as well as the senior vice president in charge of editorial at Encyclopaedia Britannica. Devereaux has also taught at the California Institute of the Arts, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

His appointment coincides with the development of a new performing-arts complex for the college, which includes state-of-the-art music and dance facilities, as well as enhanced performance spaces. Devereaux has already begun his job at Cornish.
