JOHN AND REBECCA MOORES PROFESSOR
HISTORY KEY TO POLLACK’S WINNING
After nearly 20 years as a professor in the Moores School of Music,
Howard Pollack has hit a high note. Pollack has been named a John
and Rebecca Moores Professor.
Pollack has been recognized across the nation and world for his
outstanding contributions to music history.
“Many other scholar-musicians share my admiration of Professor
Pollack’s brilliant intelligence, perseverance, musicality,
capacity for objective, subtle, cogent critical views and mastery
of the literature on any topic to which he decides to add his voice,”
said a colleague.
“I hope to show, through my teaching and work, that the study
of music as a liberal art can enhance and enrich one’s musicianship
in the widest sense,” Pollack said.
The professorship is a five-year renewable award that carries a
$10,000 annual stipend and is given to faculty members who are outstanding
in teaching, research and service.
