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 served as the Alan Schragis Postdoctoral Fellow at Syracuse University’s Department of Art and Music Histories and has enjoyed teaching graduate courses in that department as well as at the Setnor School of Music at Syracuse University.

While Justice’s scholarly publications and recent book 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 programming performances, Justice has initiated outreach programs that have allowed over 1000 Cornell students and community members to engage in-person with Concert Series artists.
