Following a nation-wide search, MSM is pleased to announce that MSM Alumnus Enrique Márquez (MM ‘04) is joining MSM as Assistant Dean for Youth Programs and Director of Precollege on August 16, 2022.

“Enrique has a deep passion and commitment to music education, with a foundational goal of excellence defined by artistry, access, and diversity of participants and programming,” says MSM Executive Vice President and Provost Dr. Joyce Griggs.

Enrique was most recently Director of Music at Interlochen Center for the Arts. His professional background brings a wealth of experiences to MSM, which include global education experiences, artistic and cultural leadership, and performances across the Americas, Europe, and Asia.

“It is a true privilege to return to my alma mater and serve its commitment to excellence in education, performance, and creative activity,” wrote Enrique to his social media followers about his new role at MSM.

As a fellow in the Sphinx Lead program, Enrique has invested his time and talent to honing his leadership skills beyond his impressive pedigree, which includes degrees from Interlochen Arts Academy, Indiana University, and Manhattan School of Music, as well as a Master’s degree in Cultural Policy and Management from City University London.
