Amy Iwano, executive director of Chicago Chamber Musicians for the past 18 years, is leaving to take up the same top role at the University of Chicago Presents.

“Amy brings inspiring vision and tremendous leadership skills to the University’s hallmark music presenting organization,” said Larry Norman, deputy provost for the arts, in a statement released by the university. “As we look forward to this year’s opening of the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, we are thrilled to welcome her to the helm of a true flagship for the arts on campus and in the city of Chicago.”

“I am both delighted and honored to join the University of Chicago at this extraordinary time for the arts on campus,” said Iwano in a released statement. “I’ve been impressed by the enthusiasm and unanimity of support for growing the arts at the University and will look forward to ensuring great music has a critical and progressive role in its future offerings through University of Chicago Presents.”

Iwano will take up her new position as executive director on April 2.
