Remember Dr Stanley E. Romanstein?

He’s the underqualified academic who led a brutal Atlanta Symphony lockout and was fired by the board just under four years ago.

Well, he’s back.

Last night Romanstein was named dean of the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music, starting next month.

The board of trustees have still to ratify the appointment.




  • Musician says:

    Actually 2 lockouts in 3 years. but who’s counting?

  • Barry Guerrero says:

    Imagine what happens if students are late for rehearsals or lessons!!!

  • Old Man in the Midwest says:

    Better job.

    No CBAs
    No tours
    No backstage divas
    Home by 5pm
    Summers off

    What’s not to like?

  • pianoman says:

    A Dean most certainly does not get the Summer off……

  • KnewHimWhen says:

    He’s a pathological liar and like all such, very “charming,” smooth and persuasive. I’m sure that’s how he’s landed this.
