The president and CEO of Robisong Consultants in New York City, Christopher (Chris) Roberts brings years of experience as an executive at Universal Music Group to his firm. Before overseeing classics and jazz labels and the launch of new artists at Universal Music Group, Christopher Roberts studied music at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon.
Lewis & Clark offers budding musicians the opportunity to enhance their skills in several ways. In addition to musicianship, literature, and theory classes, all music majors gain exposure to conducting, instrumentation, and world music.
The integration of world music into the curriculum, such as the ethnomusicology class, shows Lewis & Clark’s commitment to incorporating non-Western music into its program of study. The college offers the additional features of an electronic music studio and the Evans Music Center, which features a nine-foot Steinway concert grand piano.
