The ISM is thrilled to report that Yale President Peter Salovey has announced the reappointment of Professor Martin Jean as the director of the Institute of Sacred Music for a term ending on June 30, 2025. 

“Through Martin’s leadership, ISM has sparked new ideas, created original sounds and forms, and unlocked innovative avenues of scholarship. And ISM has contributed immensely to a unified Yale by establishing and maintaining fruitful cross-disciplinary and multi-faith collaborations with scholars and students across campus,” President Salovey said.

He also acknowledged Martin Jean’s leadership in promoting the ISM’s engagement with the world through its publications, recordings, conferences, fellowships, interdisciplinary travel seminars, and many other programs. “The Institute’s faculty, students, and alumni serve as Yale ambassadors at cathedrals, congregations, academic institutions, and art organizations in the United States and around the globe,” the President said.

We at the ISM join President Salovey in thanking Martin for his willingness to continue in this important role and in wishing him success for the years ahead.  

Congratulations, Martin!
