Huber Dedicates Work to Meehan, Moloney
By Sheila Eppolito
When most people win prize money, they quit their jobs. Others splurge on a car, or a trip. Deb Huber isn’t most people.
Recipient of the Roy J. Zuckerberg Endowed Leadership Chair, Huber has used her winnings to sponsor five original musical works. Huber is the University’s director of instrumental music outreach, and serves as artistic director and conductor of the New England Youth Wind Ensemble.
She dedicated the latest work – the world premiere of a piece by renowned composer Robert Sheldon – to Chancellor Marty Meehan and Executive Vice Chancellor Jacquie Moloney for their ongoing support of the arts.
“It’s exciting to work in an atmosphere where the arts are appreciated and supported,” says Huber.
“It’s been an honor to give back through the commission of beautiful original works.”
