Well known as a Debussy scholar, Jean Wentworth was also highly respected for her performances of solo, chamber, and orchestral works by Debussy, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Bartok, and many more. She taught piano, chamber music, and music history at the College for more than 40 years. The Jean Wentworth Music Residency will bring performing musicians of distinction to campus to work with students in program areas of music and beyond, and to offer cross-disciplinary engagement and audience building.
