S&R Foundation Appoints Jeremy Ney Arts Program Manager
WASHINGTON – October 15, 2014 – S&R Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports talented individuals with high aspirations in the arts, sciences and social entrepreneurship, has appointed Jeremy Ney as Arts Program Manager.
“We are pleased to have Jeremy Ney join our team, and handle S&R Foundation’s arts programs,” said Dr. Sachiko Kuno, president of S&R Foundation. “While we support a community of talented artists, scientists and social entrepreneurs, the public primarily knows us through our Arts programs, such as the Overtures Concert Series. With his experience as both a musician and an administrator, Jeremy is well-suited to manage our arts programs as we continue to grow, building new relationships in the Washington arts community and beyond.”
Ney, who was previously Music Specialist and Concerts Manager at The Phillips Collection, will coordinate the Overtures Concert Series, Evermay Chamber, and the S&R Washington Award. He will work closely with the Artist-in-Residence to build partnerships and collaborations nationally and internationally.
During his three years at The Phillips Collection, Ney co-organized a prestigious 73-year-old concert series. As well as managing the logistics for over 30 concerts a season, he regularly contributed program notes on music ranging from the Baroque period up to the present day.
Ney earned a BA (joint honors) in English and Music from the University of Leeds in the UK. Following his degree he worked for Arts Council England, the UK Government funder of the arts, before moving to Washington, DC in 2011.
Beyond his management role, Ney studied piano from an early age, achieving the Grade 8 qualification from the Associated Board of the Royal School of Musicians (ABRSM) in the UK. He has taught both piano and music theory, and continues to teach several young students, aged 8-13.
