Dr. Deborah Justice

Dr. Deborah Justice manages the Cornell Concert Series. She is an ethnomusicologist with degrees from The College of William and Mary (B.A., Music, Middle Eastern Studies), Wesleyan University (M.A., Ethnomusicology), and Indiana University (Ph.D, Ethnomusicology). After living and working abroad in Germany for 3 years, Justice was a postdoctoral scholar the Yale Institute of Sacred Music and then Syracuse University. She continues to teach graduate courses in the Setnor School of Music at Syracuse University in addition to her management of the Cornell Concert Series.

While Justice’s scholarly publications have focused on music, religion, and America, her focus on “liveness” translates well to her work as a concert manager. She works to analyze what motivates artists and audiences, as well as to understand how to create performative meaning beyond the concert stage. In addition to initiating outreach programs that have allowed over 1000 Cornell students and community members to engage in-person with Concert Series artists, most recently, Justice’s energy has resulted in Engaged Performance, helping Cornell music performance students become mentors to local elementary school students.
